A Love Which Wasn’t Meant To Last (poem)

Updated on May 21, 2016

Such beauty have the flowers all amassed

To grant some meaning to a pointless dawn

Upon a love which wasn’t meant to last

-

The stars of fortune watched as kisses passed

They only saw what hearts in love had drawn

Such beauty have the flowers all amassed

-

Upon a sacred book was promise cast

And on this pledge did many mornings spawn

Upon a love which wasn’t meant to last

-

Soon came dark clouds much harsher than the past

But on some ledge their hopes still teetered on

Such beauty have the flowers all amassed

-

But from some hell there came a final blast

The light so bright and happy days was gone

Upon a love which wasn’t meant to last

-

Yet till the end one promise held them fast

And all for this was magic built upon

Such beauty have the flowers all amassed

Upon a love which wasn’t meant to last

Music only

      A sad, but beautiful piece. Love can be one of the greatest treasures the world has to offer.

      Love is eternal and goes beyond death. Beautiful poem. Some may never even know of such a love in this lifetime, so it is a blessing if one had love, even if for just a bit.

      Up and more and sharing

      Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Sometimes love stays with us briefly but its memories linger forever.

      Love is not meant for everyone and those who have it must treasure love.
