Sunday Sit Down – A Thousand Years

Welcome to this weeks Sunday Sit Down. Grab a cuppa and a comfy chair and sit down to read. I feel as though I have been giving you a lot to read the last few weeks with Sunday Sit Down, with long, descriptive and somewhat heavy stories. This week I have made it simple with a short and powerful poem. This poem is one of my favourite pieces that I’ve ever written. I have recited A Thousand Years quietly in my head on many occasions over the years. I wrote it when I was in my mid teens. It is a short poem about unrequited love and loss. You could read quite a lot more into it if you feel like getting philosophical today. I hope you feel it the way I do.

~~~ A Thousand Years ~~~

A thousand years I have praised you

through the old world and the new.

A thousand years I have praised you

by the ghosts at my pew.

And being in love with only you

has meant my loving has been few.

And being in love with only you

little of love I knew.
