Unfortunately Yours


Unfortunately Yours


It is such a crying shame

a happy ending

 has so far eluded us both ..


Though ever the optimist

one can only

  live and hope for the best ..


Until then, how I wish every

windblown kiss

  shall find its intended target ..

    My comments on the poem "Unfortunately yours” by Neville
    It’s just nine lines, but it conveys a lot. We long for a happy ending, but don’t find it. It is indeed a crying shame. The futility of human pride : every step takes us closer to our grave, to decomposition, yet many mistakenly put pride first, instead of getting pragmatic.
    We keep hoping for the best, we hope that tomorrow will be better. Hope keeps us going. But, time does not stand still. The flower will wither and disappear, its beauty and use being but transient. Its days have always been numbered.

        My further comments on the poem "Unfortunately yours” by Neville
        Change the title of the poem to “Previously yours…” or “I am now hers…”
        About the flower again. On the point of withering away, it will say : “OK, at least use me on that funeral wreath.” But, it won’t be used at all… Even for placing on a grave we will look for fresh flowers…
        Man has indeed a sorry fate. He has been programmed to perpetuate the species, but often only finds obstacles in his way. In some respects, even some other creatures have a better fate…

            such a wonderful title
            'parting is such sweet sorrow'
            comes to mind, when reading

            love the tone n flow
