Love’s Wind

Written by bluZ (copyright 2-14-2016)

 

Already three beers in,

But soon I’ll start the gin,

And then I will begin

To see it all again.

 

We had life by the tail;

We simply could not fail.

No doubt we would prevail

Over every last travail.

But we missed just one detail:

Our love was just too frail;

Love’s wind becalmed our sail.

 

Now we’re goin’ through the motions

Of a love that’s lost emotion.

We can’t avoid the notion

That we simply lack devotion.

 

Such a scary thing to find

That our love can just unwind.

We continue to be kind,

But our eyes no longer shine;

Our hearts no longer pine.

 

So it’s time to walk away;

Let’s not waste another day

 

On a love that’s sadly frayed,

On a love that has decayed,

On a love that’s flown away.

 

Of course there will be sighs;

No doubt there will be cries.

But we won’t lie down and die;

And we won’t keep telling lies.

 

Someday we’ll meet again;

I’ll treat you to a gin;

You’ll treat me to a beer;

We’ll call each other “dear”.

We’ll be each other’s friend;

We’ll guess what would have been,

If we’d stuck until the end.

 

But that we’ll never know;

There is no repeat show,

No second act to love;

It’s really “yes” or “no”.

 

And “no” it has become;

Despite your pleading eyes,

It really is undone;

Yes … it’s time to say goodbye.
