A Love Story


A Love Story
'To Amy G'

I am just a beginner
Who's finding his way through
I did my best to win her
But failed and this is true.

A voice told me 'Try again'
It said perhaps she'll change
And free my heart from its pain
In love nothing is strange

I knew it would be impossible
For She had made her decision
Yet my Love so irresistible
Forced me to think of some mission

I asked myself how should I start
Is it by a letter?
Complaining about my achy heart
Explaining the matter!

I took a piece of paper
And wrote with a trembling hand
How much indeed I need her
By God! Would she understand?

I live and wait, for her I still wait
I have waited…….. Waited too long
My love has turned to a hate
For I am old and no more young

This is another love story
Which is like most of the rest
That died away quite early
And lay buried in my chest!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
