Devils Peak

Why  look for me at the foot of Devils Peak
I hear you visit there every other week
It was the choice that you made so long ago
Hate saying it but you recall I told you so
I too have memories of our rendezvous
So smitten so very much in love with you
I know your feelings for me was sincere
Even agreed we’d get married next year

I remember waiting till dusk that fateful day
Watched a blue sky turn to a morbid grey
You never came just a callous phone call
Fruitlessly trying in monotones to explain it all
I could never visit or go near that place again
A fragmented heart could not bear more pain

Alone like a boat tossed about in a boisterous sea
Rudderless lost thinking who could ever save me
Someone succinctly said I will find love someday
A truer love would most certainly come my way 
But I knew loving someone else would be unfair
On the mountain a piece of my heart I left it there

Isn’t it strange how time unobtrusively passes us by
So many years have gone what still remains is why
I expressed my feelings but I bear you no malice
Hope you never have to drink of this bitter chalice
Behold the bird with the olive branch in its beak
Suggesting that maybe now there’s peace on Devils Peak
