Can’t Say Goodbye

Lilacs and Tulips 012

Another sleepless night,

waiting for the morning light.

Weary eyed she stumbled,

to bed where nightmares waited.

One more time, he hadn’t come.

She knew his love was wrong,

but she was weak, not strong.

He’d return with excuses,

full of meaningless words of love.

Then she’s let him hold her –

hoping he’d never let go.

He was every woman’s dream come true,

eyes of blue that sparkled and flashed.

Words from a golden tongue,

used to steal hearts away.

So this game they’d play,

day after day.

He never intended to stay,

but the passion went on and on.

Night after night,

she was willing to let him hold her.

Knowing that in the cold light of day,

her bed would be as empty as her heart was.

A woman with a broken heart

and a shattered soul.

Longing for a man,

to have and to hold.

Someday he’d realize,

what treasure he had.

A woman who loved him –

more than her very own life.

Came the time,

when he opened his eyes,

to discover that she,

was the only woman he could love.

So back he raced,

with bated breath,

to a silent house

and a heart that beat like a drum.

He called her name,

as he ran from room to room.

Thinking it was all in vain –

that nothing was the same.

Then there she was on the balcony,

the setting sun shining through her raven hair.

He took her in his arms

and held on tight.

Their hearts beat a symphony,

their desires knew no end.

Kisses of passion that left them breathless –

until they whispered together ”I love you”.

  1. Sigh.
    Just the sort of man who should never be entrusted with a heart. I don’t believe they do change…
    Love your tulip image.

      Unfortunately when you love so greatly sometimes even such a man is alright as long as he is by your side. That was one of the tulips growing in our garden this spring.
