I lost my love today            
--------------------
          
I lost my love today            
I am very sad to say            
I seen her walk right by        
with another at her side        
I lost my love this week        
and now I never sleep          
I seen them in the park        
where we loved once in the dark
I lost my love this year        
and I can not stop the tears    
I seen her glance at me        
and she did not even see....
        
I saw my love go by            
and Im sure I seen her cry      
I know what she would say      
She lost her love today.

A little bit of Karma I see in this coming back your love.  Still, I'd be willing to bet it still hurt you seeing her crying, even after all that.  Good poem.

Thanks Bridgette, Everytime I read it, its a sad reminder.

Michael, you are right, it does hurt, even more when you can't be there for her.
Thanks. Parker

Very sad, James

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

devina, thanks I'll take those hugs, and raise it, with a sweet little kiss on the cheek.  

Thanks Denise, I loved that verse you added, about nobility.

Meadowmuse, thanks I think it more about my emotions then trying to write a good poem.

Very sad I do agree
Couldn't you just talk and see?
See that she felt the same way
I wonder what she would say
A nice poem your wrote but yes it's sad


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

James, this is saddening, emotional, yet beautiful.  *hugs* to you

Thanks Helmut, Echo, Hoot, I really didn't want to make everybody sad. Endings bring new beginnings, and sad endings bring poetry.
