I Anticipated More, Much More Than This

A poem about unfulfilled hopes and dreams. Goals that never were acheived and forever forgotten.

The Way We Were Supposed to Be

We were going to get a cat,
though I've always wanted a puppy
we agreed to settle for that,
We were going to sail away to Italy
on the sail boat you said you'd build
for us one day,
We were going to fly to "Jamaica"
and crawl beneath a gushing waterfall
and hold each other while the waters fell all around us,
yeah, that was something we wanted to try,
We were going to sleep in on a rainy day,
stay up late talking and sharing intimate moments,
every night being the same way,
We were to fulfill our wishes,
our dreams and make sure our promises were kept,
We were going to hold our child's hand
as they took their first step,
We were going to get married some day
in the future,
but now that's a part of the past,
We were going to love each other forever
but you were my first love and
now you're my last.


Anticipated, Intended, Meant
