My love she'd lent


    ~ MY LOVE SHE'D LENT ~

I followed her where'er she went
Lured onward by her fragrant scent

She clasped his hand, a handsome gent
How could she know my love she'd lent

I died one thousand deaths inside
Choked back my tears with wounded pride

How long such anguish could I bear
My heart asunder to let tear

The hour had come to make my move
My love for her I had to prove

Unsteady I, and quite unsure
Just how to break the news to her --

My tongue was still despite I tried
'To ask her this: 'Please be my bride.'

Well, Peter, I'm not exactly Rudolf Valentino or James Bond yet. Give me another 100 years or so. LOL. Thanks, Gershon

If you do not, you have already failed... ask ... believe... A wonderful poem... well written... your pen is sharp and the ink, full of imagery and colors, known and unknown, yet to be found in the edges of the lake near forever. Ann

Gershon, All is well in your write now. Do you speak of love? The answer was always yes. “What is Love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul.” – Victor Hugo
