A Tenderfoot In Lovesick

Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Lovesome lad doesn't know really what he wants?
And his poor parents are worried.
They take him to all the specialists with great hardships
But the sickness not diagnosed yet.
She is engaged the nextdoor lass
But the boy imagines an illusive love affair.
He is already matured now; but still a single.
And she lives happily with her grand children.
Love knot tightens day by day
And the tight-lipped dreams of his death bed seems ready.

    There is an old saying that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Very poignant write, Nimal. Take care.

    Warmest regards,

    Love will get you down. he's spending time and energy, but he's colder than himself; he needs to take control and move on. hey Nims! good to see you, bud. ~ ~ best care, sjg(Report)Reply
