An Ode To What Never Was


I loved you so much I let you go
Or maybe I loved me too much to hold on
You'd planned our end before we began
And I feared my heart was too fragile
To swell with such anticipation
And then have a boulder crash on it

You knew little
I knew nothing
We both had our fears
But I'd hoped we'll look more to our love

I hope fate's winds
Blow us back together
Better still, I hope God's hands
Join ours forever

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
