I have lost you

Shyly you bowed your sweet head
I brushed the hair from your eyes
In those moments we had left

I had lost you that was clear
Someone else now held you dear
It's over, I was bereft

I took your hand one last time
Traced my fingers on your palm
You heaved a sigh of regret

Then told me whispering low
Your parents had found a beau
We should not have even met

Your sad tears now wet your cheek
I kissed your so sweet red lips
And breathed you in one last time

I too cried myself to sleep
A pillow I held up close
Woke alone to hear bells chime
