I wrote a poem

I read a poem yesterday
it nearly broke my heart
it spoke of lovers loved and lost
they lived too far apart

I read a poem yesterday
it said she won’t live forever
but
she makes the world a better place
please don’t let me outlive her

I read a poem yesterday
it made me think of you
when the colour of my world was gold
before you turned it sad soft blue

I read a poem yesterday
it told me what I’ve got to give
all the splintered thoughts I’ve yet to think
and those dead years I’ve yet to live

I wrote a poem yesterday
it tells of our first kiss
and the wondrous time we spent together
and how it ended just like this

    Just visiting on a whim…reminds us, this piece does to give what we have – share it as best we can for as long as we can. You are one romantic Ellyphant. 😉 Hugs to you.

    …it told me what I’ve got to give…
    Something to hang on to on ‘a sad soft blue day.’
    Soulful poem
    Or maybe it’s just the weather?
