Contrition - Poem by Sheri Walters

I gave my love a melody
I gave my love a song
But all he did was shake his head
And leisurely strolled along

I gave my love a whisper
I gave my love a kiss
But all he did was turn his head
And said not here, like this

I gave my love my passion
I gave my love my heart
But all he did was close his lids
And sighed and turned to depart

I gave my love my virtue
I gave my love my all
But all he did was trudge ahead
And refused to heed my call

I gave my love a rose
I gave my love the thorns
And all I did was smile and said
You will rue this woman's scorn
