There May Come a Party

I would like to speak of
The love that never took off,
Of the circumstances
That seemed to come against us,
You’ve moved in high circles,
And you’ve been fêted,
I have squandered num’rous
Chances I’ve been gifted,
There may come a party,
And we can speak of that day,
Romance set to break free,
But circumstances
Never let our love begin.

The love that never was? Instead of took off? Just a suggestion.

Oh the pain of missing what you always imagine to be that perfect love. I say that because it probably wouldn't have been all the things you always imagined anyway. I sound harsh but I am a realist
Love this and the last you posted

Thank you...Teddy

...You're right, Teddy, I'll try it out and if I like it, keep it. It's today that I do most of the imagining, and yes, perhaps not, but I was willing to try, to say the least, and, well, she has moved in high circles, and when I say high, I mean among the highest imaginable. Not that that's everything, but it just adds an extra layer of regret. I'm so pleased you love this, and the last one...Carl.

Maybe i would know her from a Posh magazine then, I often find if something wasn't it wasnt supposed to be. But that doesnt mean that the heart moves on.

Thank you...Teddy

...that things either meant or not meant to be, but for me, we make our own happiness or otherwise through our actions.

I believe that it is or it isn't and even if we cannot accept it it still is what it is, I have not much sympathy for those who feel sorry for them selves, I am deeply sorry if I seem hard but in my life I have learnt this so I can absolutely say it. I have had a very very dramatic life of family matters and love, but I do not pitty my fortunes, nor my past or future, it is not worth such pain. All we can ever do is go forward to tomorrow with knowledge and hope that it may be a better day. I have no lost love for the person who didn't see me and potentially broke my heart because I moved on, and here's the thing "that I deserved"

I had a love so deep when I was 16 but now I'm 46 almost and I know that that great guy wasn't the guy for me. I will never forget him but it's just fate, could have been Robby Williams for all you know but at the end sence is knowing and accepting. Right? Harsh as it sounds we all need a slap in the face even if it's 40 years in coming. Someone who loves you wouldn't let you suffer such pain.

Thank you...Teddy

Teddy, 'it is not worth such pain', that is the keyword, pain, and regretting, or pitying, your fortunes, is just that, 'such pain', OK, I'm caught up in it, although a lot of people think what comes of it is a load of rubbish. Others like it, which is great. I'm still undecided myself...;) Loved Take That by the way.

I always loved Gary Barlow, I like what he does for others and what he does for charity. Have a nice day Sir.

Thank you...Teddy

I loved him in Take That, especially in the early days, they were all so good and I don't like many boy bands, they should have been massive in the US, but it didn't happen. I thought all of them, Barlow, Williams, all of them, were never better than in the early days of TT.

Those were the days, for sure, I'm also the biggest fan of the spice girls, they were legends to the 20 something girls. Carl some how the industry has forgotten it's way it's too much reality TV I liked when people were discovered on the tube for busking. London in the 80's and 90's was the place to be if you wanted to be a somebody. Even models were found strutting the streets. I've not been home since 2014 it doesn't feel such a long time but I sure miss my London. Actually I was going to visit this year but of course not such a great time to travel for fun, I'm un selfish in that respect. I cannot wait though to see the cobbled streets once again.

Thank you...Teddy

I love the Spice Girls, even now, and that is true, they were massive in the days just before the internet, it's like a long lost age now, it was the quality of the songs that is so striking about the Spice Girls, as well as the sheer charm and charisma of the girls themselves, they were best together, the original 5, not the same apart. I bet you miss London, Teddy, but as you say, not great now, I hope all this passes soon, and you can come back and see your beloved city. Carl.
