Poem about a former lover
Awakened by light I am as sad as I can be.
My dream was not the truth as you can see.
How I miss you and loved you and you never even knew.
That I gave you my heart long ago and my love was true.
You said I meant nothing to you at that time, long ago
I left you for another but he has died. He loved me so.
Why must I see you in my dream?
You never loved me really or even gave me a try.
Life just goes on without you. I refuse to cry.
I saw your picture the other day.
You had grown old like me and were bald and gray.
Life has taught us to go on and hold it all in.
But in my dreams my heart cries out for you all over again.
