Unrequited Love   (an unconventional sonnet)

sometimes, the most beautiful
memories are bittersweet

sometimes old times
seem brighter looking back
through all the fog and thunder

sometimes I wonder
how it might have been
if I had loved you any better
or if you had loved me at all

but even so, without regret
I smile about the happy
precious moments

seen now, so intimate

~Richard Summers
