Too Busy Loving You - Poem by Lora Colon

I was too busy loving you
To ever notice the signs....
The ice forming on the river,
The snow gathering in the pines

So busy was I loving you,
I didn't notice the smoke,
The fire had burned out long ago,
There are no embers left to stoke

And then there was that lovely rose
You and I planted in the Spring,
While I was busy loving you
I failed to see it withering

To our garden, without warning,
Came a killing frost one night,
Too busy was I loving you
To foresee the approaching blight

Now my tears frost the window pane,
The ice keeps you from my view,
How could I not see this coming!
I was too busy loving you

    Bad Weird
    I intended to nestle in lush spring
    Dreaming to brim heart of all lures
    Severe storm stole my lovely ring
    It turned me moaning troubadour.
