I Loved A Man

By Kelly Elizabeth Miller

I loved a man, so long ago
or at least that how it seems.
I loved a man, and I am only 16.
They say that young people cannot fall in love
this is not so. We were so close,
but yet at times so far.

His touch, his kind love.
It is painful to remember the first time he said
I love you, and how you want to believe so bad
that it will never end.

Every time I hear his song, I cry.
Every time I turn around I see him in my mind.
It was my fault we are no longer together,
I held on too tight

Oh, my God, how it hurts... I can't forget him.
But I know in time I will forget all the pain inside
and to tell you I love you, once more, face to face
would make my life complete. I will never forget
being in love at 16.

May 1984
