A Very Short Song

Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad-
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.

Once I was there too With what I just had- It never was like you For I am just a lad. But love is bad for a bloke, When love doesn’t nurse. For he will then just choke; And pay, more out of his purse.
A Very Short Song, a lovely poem. It has the voice and tone of a child. Especially created, so that suits the young age as meant in this poem, I reckon. A lovely poem. Thank you for sharing.
