Welcome to My Poetry Site
I searched a lifetime to find my true love,
Sadly, I failed, coming mightily close, but
Never close enough.
I tried double-hard to find her,
But I never did. Oh, I found her shadow
From time to time, but I was never quick
Enough, and in a flash she’d gone.
I mixed potions, drank from springs, cast
Spells all to no avail. She either didn't hear
Me, or was occupied elsewhere.
When out walking I heard her voice on the
Wind, words that danced around me as I
Walked, but when I replied, she suddenly
In sleep I heard her moving about the room,
Opening drawers, closing drawers, prettying
Up her hair, but when I looked she wasn't
Who is this mysterious woman I often ask
Myself, hard to say really, I haven't found
Her yet, but perhaps like me, she's searching
For someone kind, understanding and willing
To love a dreamer.
