 Elsie`s Poetry


This is based on a true story


This story started many years ago
When love found two hearts and set them aglow,
It was a romance that lasted to the end
One heart is left now which can never mend.

A secret love affair this was to be
Their love for each other no one could see,
A secret it was kept for many a long year
`What if someone found out?` was their main fear.

No one can help just where their heart will fall
Or know from which direction love will call,
But when it does it should be grasped so tight
And against all odds for true love you`ll fight.

Time spent together was heavenly bliss
But when apart, each other they would miss,
Love was strong and lasted 17 years
They ignored any snide remarks and sneers.

Their love was fruitful and a child was born
And they vowed to love her from night `til morn,
She was a `love child` and a dear one too
And their love for her just grew and grew.

On good luck and fortune they did depend
And they got to live together in the end,
But alas it only lasted for a year
As a heart attack took her true love dear.

She never regrets a moment of that time
Although some people think it was a crime,
She paid the price in more ways than one
But from her heart he`ll never be gone.
