I Was Wrong


I was wrong to think that roses would last forever You brought them to me that day so long ago My heart was captured by your boyish smile You were not yet a man and that I didn't know We made promises and our hearts were glad But you were gone when life began to show its face Now I'm left with only those dry and brittle roses And memories of that time that I can not erase

    How little we knew.....with age comes a better understanding of human nature.....if only we could have both youth and wisdom at the same time! :)

    Very sad but appealing expressions on lost love, Barbara

    Lovely! Soft with haunting images of an innocent doomed love.

    I wish the wound that that boy cut open in you would eventually heal. Many of us have experienced this and I can relate to the searing pain that persists even during the most mirthful times. Great conversion of that energy into poetry. :)
