You'Re Not The One - Poem by James Casey

Your Not The One

Didn't you see this love right before your very eyes?
It was not just one of lust to go between your thighs
I could not offer you something that comes from above
But I came to offer you all my unconditional love
So many words have been written and sent your way
I fell in love with you totally and even said, Okay

Why now almost three years to the date
You withdraw and do not want to be my mate
Many precious moments with dreams and desires
All the fears, hopes and things that we aspire
Many hours we spent on a machine talking
I never felt that I was hounding or even stalking

All the wonders through your words relieved
The man that you created made me believe
I never felt in jeopardy a cause for me to die
When asked to marry, you left me with a sigh
All your thoughts and feelings somewhere else
Far, far away from me to someone else

Each day that passes I now see so clear
I grow stronger, and my eyes no longer tear
Twisting your words won't, give me hope
I realize, you’re not ready, I'll learn to cope
Wishing that you were my true soul mate
I figured it out when it was too late
As the old saying goes, I'm slow, but not dead
You've found a new love, it's him you will wed

With this poem written and nearing the end
I release you in order for my heart to mend
There is just one important thing you should know
I will always love you wherever you go
