When We Were Together - Poem by Lora Colon

When me and my love were together
The purpose of life was defined;
We belonged together, like birds of a feather,
We knew we were two of a kind

We knew we belonged together,
A lord and his lady were we;
Like a wave on the shore, like a boat in its moor,
Our union was meant to be

O, we were so happy together,
The love songs he wrote were for me;
Could love be truer, could skies be bluer?
This would last for eternity!

But, you know nothing lasts forever,
Just as Winter gives way to Spring;
He fell to temptation, then prayed for salvation -
Leaving me as the offering

    The cad indeed leaving you as the offering, the last line makes the poem sought of tongue in cheek and funny and I'm sure you got the last laugh...regards (Report) Reply
