A Younger Heart Poem by JJ Evendon

A Younger Heart

 


I am old enough to know the truth,
you are young and I older than you.
I have always been truthful, about the age I am.
and you always wanted to be with a younger man.

There is no doubt you are young and smart,
but when it comes to love you struggle with your heart.
I wish I could be the one to set it free.
Take you in my arms and place it next to me.

Time has passed and time forgotten
for then the sky was filled with clouds of cotton.
When my dreams of yesterday seemed real and close,
like meeting you that day in a field of sunflowers I suppose.

But as with life all things must come to an end,
never knowing, never knowing where and when.
So please take heart from what I finally have to say,
for you had stolen its beat since that very first day.
