Dream of Love


I wish sometimes life was fair. Then perhaps love would follow soothe. I had dreamt about love One that never fails though it errs I had held that dream in a place i felt it safe But perhaps it is i who err For love i've learnt does not heed faithful men. Do not misjudge my righteousness I have known myself not perfect But had hoped to be loved just as i love. Perhaps not all men enjoy the luck To lay at night in the bossom of love To watch her sleep like a doll To know in your heart that she is yours. Some are condemned to waking to loneliness To drink strong wine and dine with themselves While i yet still hope I pray i had not found love and let it pass For then vain would be my wait. I hope some how along lives course I will find a love that never fails The kind that holds true to faithful men.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
