A Love Story
A Love Story
'To Amy G'
I am just a beginner
Who's finding his way through
I did my best to win her
But failed and this is true.
A voice told me 'Try again'
It said perhaps she'll change
And free my heart from its pain
In love nothing is strange
I knew it would be impossible
For She had made her decision
Yet my Love so irresistible
Forced me to think of some mission
I asked myself how should I start
Is it by a letter?
Complaining about my achy heart
Explaining the matter!
I took a piece of paper
And wrote with a trembling hand
How much indeed I need her
By God! Would she understand?
I live and wait, for her I still wait
I have waited…….. Waited too long
My love has turned to a hate
For I am old and no more young
This is another love story
Which is like most of the rest
That died away quite early
And lay buried in my chest!
