I wrote this poem at a time when I felt the relationship I was in wasn't working out anymore. Missing the good times I shared with this person, I will give everything now to have those times back. That's what inspired me to write this poem. Hope you love it.

Lost Love

© Francis Lyke

Like a leaf in summer falling off a tree, you could see that love is gone.
Love, she was once our pretty little girl.
But we gave her hate & pain for bread.
We tore her apart with the claws of our conflicts & strife's.
With our unforgiveness & pride, away we drove her into the wild.
Now the sun has gone down on our love.
The world is so cold without you love.
Daily she sat crying at our harsh words.
Now look she's no more.
We fed her not with the food & drink of forgiveness & care so she grew weak.
Love, who was once so strong.
We ignored her whenever she called out to us.
She was in trouble & we fought for her not.
Now she's gone far from us.
So each day I sit here all by myself listening closely if I could just hear her voice.
I miss her dearly, love.
The one whom our feelings conceived.
Love, she was the best thing that happened to us, now am convinced.
But the day we turned our backs on each other we drove her away.
Love, I hope to find you someday and this time, I won't let you leave again.
