Patrick William Kavanagh Poems
A Close Encounter
Sitting at the bus stop all alone, acting busy, toying with my mobile phone,
No mail, no texts, just playing games, and just pretending I don't feel alone.
A smile from you would mean so much, - but I can't catch your eye,
I think you're lonely just like me, - I smile at you, but you can't see.
The lonely moments ticking by, I see my chance is slipping by,
I realise that you will never look my way,
And fear's the reason why.
My smile dies in the frozen wastes between our hearts,
A friendship that will never be, A love that could have grown from such a simple ...
Please don't lie so still, so silent and so cold,
I told you love was just a game to pass the lonely times,
We laughed and played and hugged and kissed, and made up silly rhymes
We built a world of smoke and dreams and moonlit walks,
with starlight in your hair,
And dawn would rise within your eyes and show the lovelight there.
I never said forever and I put you straight, right from start,
All I wanted was a little fun, I never meant to break your heart.
