Goodbye dream of mine
I only held you briefly
If ever at all

Live for love. Without love, you don't live.

This is a small piece of your heart, isn't it?  It says so much in such a short space.
I love this; spoke to me dearly.

InterLoper~
This is a stirring piece.
So much packed in such a small package.
Very, very well portrayed.

I held you briefly... and will forever mourn I couldn't hold you longer. A lot of sadness in a few words.

I must agree with PK...sometimes the fewer the words the greater the emotion.  Well done!
