A Heartbreaking Thing

Poem By Francis Duggan

It does seem that you will pine for her for years
Yet she does not love you she is not worth your tears
She married another rears his baby boy
A young mother in love her life she enjoy

Of the praises of love many happy to sing
But unrequited love is a heartbreaking thing
One can say of it that it is love's sadder side
And it even has led some to death by suicide

Time is the best healer as some like to say
The sense of loss you feel will slowly fade away
The ache will grow less as the weeks tick on by
Why lost love cause such heartache one must wonder why?

Pointless pining for somebody who to someone else is true
She left you for another her thoughts are not of you
Suppose for every up in life there has to be a down
Unrequited love has left you as a sad sack of the town.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
