The Wicked Dart (For Tim) - Poem by Daphne Grant

Heartache, joy and pain betwixt'
The sunrise and the seasons,
You have got me all bewitched,
I guess you have your reasons.

Cupid with his wicked dart,
Saw you and then saw me.
He thought he'd have his fun with us,
And gave us both infatuation.

Now you are the moon, the stars,
The're all there in your face
I guess you'll haunt my dreams at night
Oh night, where is your grace.

Without my own true love,
Whom I can never tell!
Oh Romeo, and Juliet
Both under your same spell.

Were ere a boy and girl
In such a great dilemma
Oh come sweet love, for you
And I must hide away together.

I held your hand so sweet and warm
As we strolled by Niagara
Saw together the sweet lit falls,
That night shall last for ever.

Alas, next day, you turned your head,
Your eyes would not meet mine.
And I relive that night again,
Your hand so warm in mine.

1999
