Essay Poem, A Short Telling.... - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

A young man had a girlfriend.
He was getting tired of her because
she sent him messages every hour that said
"I miss you" or "I love you".

One night before going to bed,
he let it again on the table,
and went instantly to sleep.

In the morning he was awakened by a call.
It was girlfriend's mother crying saying
that his girlfriend was killed last night.

He was in a state of shock,
went to read the message:
"My sweetheart, come quickly, I think someone is following me! ".

Now everyDay he comes
and brings One Extra Flower
to the Spot where she was murdered.

Moral of the story:
never rejects those who love, care, and try to reach out to you, because one day you'll realize
you lost the moon while counting the stars!



If ever you are touched by this story....Please, do give a smallest comment,
thank you so much, sent with love,

Sylvia Frances Chan, Dutch Poetess,
Evangelist, World Traveler
