Just Another Fern

 Just Another Fern 
(A confession…) 

Love at first sight this must be, 
Such beauty and grace I live to see. 
Portrait of perfection in the spring air as you dance,
My precious daffodil, spare me a glance.

I peeked, I stared, I witnessed, I died, 
By the sight of a foe longing to be at your side.
Jealousy whispered, its icy breath I felt, 
Packed with love and courage, to your highness I knelt.

You answered my prayer, even said you were pleased, 
But why do I feel that your happiness I seized? 
It struck me like thunder, your coldness revealed,
You’re in love, but not with me, an ugly truth unconcealed.

I dreamt, I saw, I tried, I failed, 
Disappointed and hurt, but love never paled. 
I would rather go blind, I would hold on ‘til I dry, 
I would keep on hoping, I would try and try.

To retreat and surrender, I will never learn.
I'm just another lover, just another fern.
