Lonely as a cloud

Once I wandered lonely as a cloud
Did not express my thoughts out loud
When childlike life was mostly play
But with an urge to seize the day

I looked at girls they laughed at me
But there was one I could see
Was happy to walk and hold my hand
'til foolish I spied a girl named Anne

It wasn't until I thought a bit 
This was no way of doing it
Here was I indulging my all
For soon this led to my downfall

I had not thought of how they felt
For met this girl, my heart did melt
Was convinced she was next to none
Despite my pleas, was not the one

All through my life I dreamed of her
Yet so much else is just a blur
Until one day Facebook request
There she was, now my soul can rest

  1. Ah, restless soul! Those unforgettable moments can call and call until satisfied. Good one.

  2. Facebook saves the day! Wow. This was such an enjoyable read. Love the picture too.

  3. Ha, this makes me think of how I sometimes troll the facebook page of an old lost love. Smiles. Just to look, I never make contact.

  4. I so enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme reflecting joy, perfect for the content.

  5. Love this!💖 It's incredible how we are able to connect with people via Facebook isn't it? :)

  6. Ah, I so adore this lovely and witty response to the prompt! Any the rhymed verses...accomplished.

  7. None of my exes are on FB. Guess they are too old and un-techy, lol.

  8. Sometimes it happens that way. I have one X on Facebook but we aren't friends. Lol!

  9. Yay! I am glad your soul is at rest.
    Anna :o]

  10. Facebook is good for something, I guess!

  11. Good one... Accept the request :)
