I have lost you

Oh how I wish you were with me again
I have lost you
How we enjoyed life despite its foilbles
We'd stick like glue
Wrapped up in each others arms
How high we flew
Travelled the wide world and laughed with joy
The skies were blue
We found a nest where we could live in love
I have no clue
Why you were stolen right out of my arms
Turn of the screw
You bade goodbye and not a single eye was dry
I loved you true
Oh to hold you tight in my arms again
Surely all our love was not lived in vain?

  1. I like it, O.E. It happens, I also have lived that one' My steady for almost two years left, just left, didn't really say goodbye or explain. Her real boy friend was in the Air Force overseas and when he came home she went home with him. Quit her job, we worked at the same factory, and all. I did see her little brother at the Oklahoma Welcome Station, he was coming into Texas, I was leaving. We talked a bit but hardly any was said of her. I didn't ask, he didn't tell.

  2. Oh this is so heart-wrenching, Robin.

  3. Awwwww... I was sad to see this poem turn. It is so light and free for the first few verses. Really lovely.

  4. This is so sad, and beautifully written, Robin.

  5. Lost loves... we all wonder don't we?
