February 12, 2005
This is a poem I received for V-day last year from a very very good friend. I dedicate this to all people still in search of Love and to those who have found true Love.
_ I lost my heart in Heidelberg's fair city
Twas in a gentle summer night
I was in love, so deep in love enatangled
Her rosebud mouth was laughing with delight.
When at the gates at last we parted
I kissed farewell her knowing in the end
My heart was lost in Heidelberg forever
My heart still beats at the Neckar strand.
One evening I remember I was not twenty yet
Her hair was light and golden
The lips I kissed so red
The air was blue and blissful
The Neckar a silver sea
And then I know, and then I knew
What the matter was with me.
Again is on the Neckar the wine
In bloom, as then,
The years have been a passing
I am a lonely man
And if you asked a fellow why
He did no one find
I told you, friends, I told you friends, what there is on my mind.
What has become of you dear
Since I had to be wise
Old Heidelberg, so beautiful
You German paradise
I went away in sorrow
Left happiness,ease and wine
I think of you, I long for you
You are my "auld lang syne"._
I don't know what others think of this poem but it always bring a tear to my eye when I read it. _Just recently I realize that Love is when it hurts so much to Love someone. _
