Poems of Elizabeth Sheaffer

Young Love

There once was a young man of twenty,
in love with a girl of sixteen.
He thought they'd last forever,
but the girl was simply too green.

She told him, 'I love another;
my love for you has faded.'
Her admission broke his heart,
and left his outlook jaded.

[Hata Bildir]
