WITHOUT ANABEL'S SMILE

Without Anabel's smile,
I am a forest without a tree,
a universe without its golden sun;
and with a loner's heart,
I'll forever search for my lovely and unseen star!
Without Anabel's smile,
I'm tossed by the storm...to be thrown into the sea!
and with little hope,I easily lose heart!   

Some women are easy to love,
and Anabel's name fits these tender words;
a real woman stands by her adored man, 
and gives him all she can...
Anabel...lovely Anabel,
everything turned awfully sad...
when our beautiful star fell
from the August sky to the silent earth!

Without Anabel's smile,
life becomes a flower without spring,
an empty hand that holds nothing;
and mine waits for her distant hands
to touch me and make me come alive...
and if destiny is kind, we will dance!

Anabel...untrue Anabel, prettier than an unreal goddess:
have you found another sweet-heart...and settled for less?

    It's a real puffy piece with creative air. I felt sorry for you until the last lines. Those are better-man-lines. Real women are hunted by many and won by few. The sad part is in the game. If you catch her, she might not be real for you. The chase is endless and all along, that real one was next to you.
