Last Glance!

He was 24,
and I, was but 15.
My love for him was
stronger than steel.

But it would never
work out for the good.
Too many complaints,
from both families.

We saw each other
two days ago.
Both with someone
new on our arm.

We just simply looked
at each other
and kept walking
in different directions.

But we both looked
back, and took one
more glance, hoping
it was the last.

Sorry that things didn't work out for you, Lynn, but best of luck to you in the future. Your poem told the situation well.

But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."
