I Only had One Heart to Give Away

I only had one heart to give away & I gave it away in youthful exuberance.

Now I lean forward into a short future & a long past passing from remembrance.

I only had one heart to give away I’ve spent a long time “in love” & I’m weary.

Now I still wait for him to sit by me cause that’s all you want in your life when life’s dreary

I only had one heart to give and I shouldn’t have given it to him in Springtime.

I sit chilly in Fall facing winter & my lover/friend is lagging his way behind my Time.

I only had one heart to give & I gave it away to carrying friendship instead of a love I wanted.

Yet I still hold out hope that he might one day see that it’s better to be loved than flaunted.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
