I Never Found The One - Poem by Lora Colon
Today, I bought my favorite wine
And a red rose with a long stem;
Watching the young girls passing by,
I recall when I was one of them
There was a time when my young dreams
Ran wild and free, with no care;
Searching for love, I was confident,
As for suitors, I had my fair share
The men were handsome, witty and fun,
And they all made their bid for me;
Strangely, I turned my back to them all,
What I wanted I just didn't see
But time wouldn't wait, it marched along,
With no concern for my destiny;
The hills got higher, the rivers, wider,
Then heaven abandoned me!
As the years moved on, I waited and watched,
Now I wonder what I should have done;
I believed that fate would bring him to me,
But I never found The One
And I watch the sun as it slowly descends
Ever downward in the Valley of Remorse;
Am I destined to suffer the rest of my life
For failing to chart my course?
Time won't allow me to correct the past,
And as I sit alone sipping my wine,
I know somewhere there's a lonely man.....
A man who should have been mine
