An unrequited love

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I gave you years of selfless love.
You gave me years of pain.
My dreams soared upwards like a dove,
Then jerked back on your chain.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I stood upon your moss-strewn stand
Through snow and wind and rain.
The barrier frozen to my hand,
A numbness in my brain.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Each season’s start filled me with hope,
I’d sing the old refrain.
But soon I’d watch the steep’ning slope
Cause all my dreams to wane.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And now my life is at an end,
I’ll soon be free from strain.
Goodbye, my undeserving friend,
I’ll not see you again.
