a death

Written by: john loving iii

a death i died today
for a love that went away
a cold and windy day
i could not ask her stay

the love we had was warm
and twas so beautifully formed
but roses have thorns
and memories, they warn

a tear is in my eye
and i almost start to cry, remembering
my tears were ment for someone else
don't take love and move it somewhere else

trapped by what love is
i'll just stay where i am
i'll go on the best i can
and sometime long to touch a hand

the river is flowing into an ocean
and the tide has torn us assunder
where will we drift i now wonder
i pray, don't let the tide take you under
