A Love Went Wrong - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

The sun keep on shining high
With sweet and tender smiles
As melody of rhythm fill the sky
with scents of joy more than mile.

I never thought I could ever sigh
with needles of pains every while
As the wind whispers me to fly
the tears of sorrows in my eyes.

I love to fumble a lovely melody
rejoicing for having your serenity
but when you gifted me infidelity
I hung my guitar to rest eternally.

I may not be perfect as you see
But never did I love somebody
For I vowed to serve forever thee
until my life be gone someday.

But with the Grace of God for me
Let the wheel of fate take me faithfully
To where I may rest and find glory
of a true love untarnished till eternity.

    my favorite line here is, I hung my guitar to rest eternally-it is very meaningful, it says many things, and i see the picture you want to paint on this poem.

    you are good at words, you express well. Mabuhay ang Manunulang Pinoy sa Poemhunter.
