what can i say? this is the perfect love poem for someone whom you can not
keep forever, for that someone who happens to be the greatest thing that
has ever come into your life, for that someone whose memories will be more
than enough for you to say that life is good and it is indeed worth living
and dying for, for that someone whom i call SC. what a way to possess and
at the same time not to possess that someone.

I am a happily married 60 year old man and I have loved this poem since I
was 17. I can finally relate to the first lines. A delightful woman that
I work with is having a very strong effect on me. I feel helpless to
resist these emotions. She must remain a foreign country, “somewhere i
have never traveled”. The intensity of her effect on me is greatly
increased by the fact that my feelings must remain secret. The childlike
innocence of the love expressed in this poem has helped me to enjoy this
experience and allow it to remain “gladly,beyond any experience”.

are there any words? i can't say anything but that it's beautiful, for no
words would come close to defining it- he's used them all already.

of all the poems i have ever read, this by far is the most moving. the poem
itself is a beautiful mastery of words, but the meaning transcends the page
and relishes the subject to which it is directed to. may i attin beauty one
day that captivates someone so breathlessly.

I was given this poem by a man i knew only a week. I had been going
through a emotional time and was fragile. I've always been told I talk
with my eyes. Whenever this man is around me, he stays only 10 minutes or
so and it seems he has to leave my presence. He said his hormones start to
kick in. Does he love me or does he have lust in his heart? How am I to
know? I understand it all except for the rain has such small hands. To me
, he is saying, I have never met anyone like you and I could easily love
you.

perfect combination with the song "The first time I loved forever"......
makes one see things in a beautiful perspective...
