When Love Eludes - Poem by GORDON BUTCHERS
Like a parched desert flower
Crying out for the rain,
He waits for love to replenish his soul
To wash away his pain.
Waiting for love to touch his heart
Like the warm summer breeze,
The love that had deserted him in the past
And brought him to his knees.
Clinging to his self pity
In depths of despair,
Waiting for the day to come
When he finds true love somewhere.
She showed mixed feelings
To which he couldn't respond,
he tried to read her mind
But had no magic wand.
If there was a way
A way to win her heart,
He would do whatever it takes
And they would never part
You can't make someone love you
If the feelings don't come together,
But if she felt the same as he does
He would love her more than forever.
Until the day true love comes his way
He'll be longing for that day if ever,
Then the loneliness will leave his heart
And his sadness will be gone forever.
