A LETTER TO MY LOVE
My heart cries in sorrow
As I’m torn into anguish
by the unbeguiling memories of a past untold,
as the dark secret unfolds
one blunt regretful decision, has torn my life apart
and led it to an early dead end.
How can mine heart be at peace, nor my mind at ease?
Not after such a tragedy, for the pain I’ve wrought is untold
I’m in quandary of thought, of such reckless intent
actions that have brought great pain,
to the daughter worth unconceivably great value and wealth
I’ve hurt, lied to and heartbroken
the one and only, who had the heart that found a place for me
to love me and only wish for the best for my life, of one who stood by me,
believing and trusting, forgiving and loving
and yet there I was, casting to the swine such precious love and care
she had for me.
The pillar that held me together,
the one that kept me in place;
I’ve treated like a shack and wrought down with a single blow
And now forlornly I lay in despair
for I’ve burnt to ash the one home I beheld, the place of rest, comfort and peace
the home that gave me warmth in a cold winter night,
and a refreshing shade on a hot sunny day
by mine own hand, I’ve wasted her heart into fragments,
a million fragments I’ve broken it into, and scattered them with the wind
now all the hope, the faith, the love and the joy had departed
a reckless soul I’ve been.
And now the pain is mine to bear;
of two worlds colliding; though once one,
but alas I’ve broken to two,
a heart that was meant to last the times,
and a love that was meant to have been a landmark in the world of love and romance
if truly time was a banknote, I’d make an instant withdrawal,
and go back to the past
with a single mission: to rewrite my wrongs
and change my present reality into a song
with a never-ending tune and hum of melody,
a love that would forever be even in times past earth.
