Unloved - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

You’re lovelier than a summer breeze
Wafting the perfume of flowers
In a sleepy valley,
One can only imagine how delicately pretty
The midnight starlight would be in your eyes.

I’m lonely in this current incarnation,
I live like a stranger during this visit on earth;
I know the purpose of this sojourn
Is the opportunity to fall in love
With a woman’s breath on an autumn night
And to gaze at her affectionately
Across a table of candlelight.

I’ll be dancing alone beneath a lamppost
And remembering the longing I feel
When I hear the melody of your voice;
I’m not disappointed for having seen you,
Just for not being more heroic
In placing a ring upon your finger
And assuring you, you will never
Depart this existence unloved.
