cultural differences

I remember when I met you
on a night of bitter cold
your promises of sunshine
to warm me as I grow old

you told me I was different
my attitude my voice
I believed your every word
thought you had made your choice

now your smile is disappearing
eyes growing ever stonier
a difference of culture
all hail Caledonia

before you leave my angel
one thing I need to know
is it true what made you love me
is the reason you must go

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

  1. Those last two lines are wonderful! They tell so much about so many of my relationships.
