The Bells (poem)

Updated on August 18, 2012

He sits and thinks of man he used to know

That met a girl who’d one day change his life

He promised her he’d never let her go

As time went by engaged her as his wife

-

The day was blessed by sound of wedding bells

When on a book he swore they’d never part

He still recalls the feelings and the swells

This love to whom he’d dedicate his heart

-

It’s still unclear when challenges began

With each regret came worse one than before

Heartaches and tears was not within their plan

So all they were was swept through open door

-

Funeral bells were mourning on that day

When he and layers signed a man away

      You have a real knack for tragedy. Some might even say a dark side. I'll just call it talent!

      Great Job!
