For I Cannot Forget U But Heaven Knows I Would Never Try

For I Cannot Forget U But Heaven Knows I Would Not Try
by Tom Baker

i cannot forget you
though why would i try for
now that the seed of friendship has been
implanted and watered in my cardiac soil

i cannot forget you
as you’ve sprouted those roots
and taken firm hold beneath the
love and music played by my heartstrings

i cannot forget you
your foundation in me runs deep
to the fiber of my very being
far enough to alter my soul

i cannot forget you
nor pretend that it’s an option
my stems and my blossom now turn to your heart
basking in the sunshine that is u

for i cannot forget you…
but heaven knows i would never try
t’would be futile to turn
to turn away from love

    Very lovely but passionate poem.

    • #12 by Tom Baker on June 23, 2012 - 1:35 PM

      I appreciate that but it is just a poem to a friend. No “passion” but I think I know what you mean.

    I loved each line of this poem. Their beauty goes on increasing, with each new line. But still, if I had to pick my favs, I’d choose these: “my stems and my blossom now turn to your heart, basking in the sunshine that is u..” Probably because I love sunshine. And yes, I agree with your thoughts. Friendship and the love it entails can be strong enough to alter your soul! :)

      Thank you Shira. I’m glad my bunso thinks it is deep. I had a great inspiration.

    Resistance is futile. Embrace every friendship you can. True friends are hard to find these days.

    They are simple words but so beautiful together. You have a tender spirit Tom. I like this.
