Slipping between deft fingers
Spilling onto the floor
Before sliding out the door
Caressing the length of my body
Like a learned lover (who knows how to recover)
Your hands, my partners in crime
But only for a limited time
What I thought was a beginning
Was nothing short of a swift end
Oh yes, you are indeed quite broken
To have ever mistaken me for a token
You've missed out on the real deal...
Stable, loving, generous, and kind
Shining inside and out, with a brain to match
Men 19-90 think me a "catch"
I wonder if you know all you've lost
Or, can conceive of the ultimate cost
For, if you truly wanted happiness, why ignore it away?
And, to my great disappointment, with barely a delay???
The stars say you hope to one day realign
Far be it for me to question the Divine
Yet, despite all your talk of "Destiny" and "Fate"
You treated me like leftovers on your plate
I waited, you know
But after months of no reply
There was nothing left to do but politely say goodbye
Yet I still somehow hear your voice, like a lullaby...
I hope you find happiness...I really do
And doubly-hope I do, too
You may still wish to dwell in silence and pain
But my heart can no longer be cleaved in twain
You search and search (and search!)
To justify leaving me in the lurch
Unable to admit to your mistake
I think that makes you (not me) untrustworthy, the "real" fake
I saw you as a new partner in life and love
To me, you were a gift from heaven above
A star in my night sky
With you, I finally(!) felt I could fly
What a shame you did not see the same in me
Beyond the shadow of a doubt, we've missed a rare opportunity.
I felt it in that first kiss...
For the duration of my lifetime, it's you I'll miss.
