 Welcome to My Poetry Site


She faded in the light

I kept her on the window sill

My heartthrob sweet and fair

I'd look at her throughout the day

She knew how much I cared

I dusted her, I trusted her

I kissed the glass goodnight

But as with lots of things in life

She faded in the light


I'd hoped one day to marry her

My plans were set in stone

It's why I kept her photograph

Where I could see it when I want

But time has been no hero

It's clocks a waste of sighs

For when I wasn't looking

She faded in the light


The frame is standing empty

It's shine has dulled to naught

The photo paper bleached to white

A shadow of what was

No way that I can change a thing

No way I'd want to – right?

I gave her all the love I could, but

She faded in the light
