Robbery - Poem by Barry Middleton

you took my song away
and left without a care

you took away the rose
and left me with despair

for hope is banished now
a diamond turned to coal

the strength I had is gone
my courage and my soul

within the vicious crowd
and menaced by my fear

you robbed me of my life
and purloined every tear

you shattered all my joy
and drifted from my sight

the image of your smile
has vanished in the night

my grief almost complete
yet hunts me down by day

in memories of love
that will not steal away
