I WANT someone who fits like a "Hand in a Glove"

Why must I be so unlucky in Love  ?

It is a pity : that Im not more pretty

But some MEN Ive had : have been really BAD


How can it be there's no one out there for ME ?

One reason WHY is the Im really SHY !

I try to be BOLD : but am I too OLD ?

The MEN that I meet are SOUR : not SWEET


My HEALTH lets me Down : cos it makes me Frown

I think Im a HONEY : but I aint got no MONEY !

To   find LOVE takes time : so Im never in line

Im reading the BOOK ! But I dont know where to look !


What about YOU : are YOU looking too ?

Dont be left behind : SEEK AND YOU TOO WILL FIND : AMEN !


Thanks for visiting : comments please : Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡


This no longer applies to me : because as You know

BRIAN & I found each other TWO YEARS ago and plan

to be married at EASTER 2020 when I will be 32 and

BRIAN 36 !  However some of the TEN reasons cited

above for being "Unlucky in Love" did apply to me from

20 to 28 !  My DAD is Spanish and longed to walk his

Beautiful Daughter down the aisle with a SPECIAL MAN !

He even arranged a few dates for me ! I was career minded

and didn't finish my studies and intern until I was 24 ! 

I had a few MEN FRIENDS and then I met BRIAN and

everything fell into place !  Our love has even survived 

SEVEN MONTHS on work exchange in NZ  11,500 miles

apart !  Every Blessing Ladies your True Love is out there !   


TWELVE of the FOURTEEN LINES in this Sonnet have internal

Rhyme !  Personally I find if a POEM is SAD or Serious : That

internal RHYME lightens it a BIT : OK  Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡

    I gave up - I'm too old! lol. A nice poem, and croon from 1949 there A&B!


      THANKS UNCLE STEVE : Lots of my Older Friends (70+) are neutral in LOVE ! But it is ironic in the Retirement Homes that the DAMES outnumber the BEAUS 10:1 and (despite VIAGRA !) its 20 years too late ! Although some do get married and always tell me "Its just for COMPANIONSHIP !" Pleased you enjoyed the Package ! Its 8 am (THURS) here and Im getting ready for work ! Blessings & Spiritual Love : ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

        Great poem and great to hear good old PC again - I recall his TV shows - so laid back he was almost upside down.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          YES UNCLE MIKE : Perry Como ! Great Artist : Great Song ! Brian & I love the Popular Music from the UK & USA in the 50s 60s 70s a great era. Only Tony Bennet left to fly the Ballad Flag. Most ex-Pats in NZ play that music for Parties & 60\'s Dances & Sing Alongs ! Pleased you enjoyed it !

          Some people are so unfortunate not to find that right person, you have now Angela and I did so many years ago.

            Good observations on the state of some relationship;s when love is a word rarely if ever mentioned - - - yet when it comes love rings its bells in our core - -- and we know --- a lovely sonnet dear Angela.

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Many Thanks FAY : 8 am and another day here ! YES we spend Years looking for True Love but when it comes .......

              A distant bell and stars that fell :
              YES I recall the thrill of it all :
              When I found BRIAN ~ AMEN !

              Love is now all around : ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡
