Unrequited Love

Quietly she sits in longing
Quietly she sits in wait
Who is she to venture from here?
Who is she to tempt her fate?

Minutes seem to pass like hours
Hours seem to pass like days
Still she sits here waiting for him
She's left her life in many ways

Darkness soon starts to surround her
Daylight it is fading fast
Not believing he isn't coming
She clings only to the past

It's been years since he has left her
Still she sits and waits for him
Watches as the night surrounds her
Waits as daylight soon grows dim

In her mind she sees him with her
Dressed up in his suit of black
This is love so unrequited
She can't see he won't be back

So the woman waits in silence
Spends her final days this way
While the man sits with his family
Watching all his kids at play

Promises he once had told her
Long forgotten in the past
Still she waits, for she believed him
When he said their love would last

She spends her days recalling memories
While pictures of them hang above
Is there no such sadder story...
Than that of unrequited love?

hoot_owl_rn,
The basket of sorrow over flows this morning.
Good job.

There is nothing so painful.
