A Love Not Found

She was all he wanted

He was all she desired

She was close to tears

He was feeling tired

She would search on high

He would say goodbye

She with open heart

He felt himself depart

She lived in hope they’d kiss

For him the chance had missed

She searched each day the crowds

His body lay in the ground

She hoped to soon lock eyes

He was watching from the skies

She dreamed of holding hands

He became more of the lands

She cried for a love not known

He had wilted down to bone

She felt he did exist

He was now in natures kiss

She wished to find the one

He knew that chance had gone

              Thanks M,
              I think I have learnt to value love more than ever now. Some never get love. I was lucky, it is a true treasure when found

                    Another touching write, your writing is always so moving, you really reach out and pull me in.
                    Love the structure, the flow and of course the story, which is painful but beautifully written.
