Lucky You! - Poem by Denis Martindale

You're in love but she won't phone.
You're in love but she won't write.
You're in love but you're alone.
You're in love but what a plight.
You're in love but she's not keen.
You're in love but not so sure.
You're in love but not serene.
You're in love but how long for?
You're in love but does she care?
You're in love on tenterhooks!
You're in love so said a prayer!
You're in love and checked God's books!
You're in love, what's going on?
You're in love and in great need!
You're in love, where has she gone?
You're in love and yet you plead!
You're in love yet will God hear?
You're in love yet fading fast!
You're in love and so sincere!
You're in love but can it last?
No... suddenly it's finished!
It's simply run its course.
Its power has diminished
And now it's closed its doors!
Unloved, you understand...
Unloved, you let her be...
You thought that love was grand,
Yet there's no guarantee!
You fell for fairytales!
You fell for twinkling eyes!
You're just like other males
Who thought that she was nice!
She's just a shameless flirt!
You're lucky you learnt quick!
I know that you feel hurt...
But have another pick...
