A Broken Promise - Poem by Barry Middleton

if love is a promise in spring
so love may as surely take wing
for springtime must end
though lovers pretend
what love's frail illusion can bring
.
no love is a union of souls
to hold us until we grow old
for love seems to fade
like spring's masquerade
when seasons return to the cold
.
so love will await the refrain
the seasons are ever to blame
for love will know fall
and winter's dark pall
until only memories remain

Topic(s) of this poem: illusion, love
