Some Sweetie Stole My Heart Away - Poem by Denis Martindale
Some sweetie stole my heart away
And trod it underfoot...
To leave me feeling such dismay,
Defenceless, soft as soot...
As weak as water, drained of life,
Of energy and verve...
The palpitations and the strife
Are more than I deserve.
Yet life goes on, though friendship dies...
Regardless of one's fuss...
You think it won't and yet time flies -
It really, really does.
Accepting truths one cannot change
Brings closure then release,
Despite the fact that things feel strange,
There comes a sense of peace...
Blessed are they that have lived to tell,
Survived another day,
Endured the lonely nights of Hell...
When love has gone away...
