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

      Happiness surrenders to sadness in this poem. You have such a gift.

      As always a pleasure to read.

      Mh -

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

      Great Job!
