Lost You

To an endearing soul


I lost you in the spring of our love
When flowers were full in bounty bloom
And birds sang as they chirped about
The skies their clear pale bluer hue
And earth beneath my feet was soft
I lost you in the spring of our love
But Why? Oh Why? I cannot guess!

I fretted for you in summer that year
When colored flowers questioned my soul
And birds so gaily hurt with song
The skies too wounded in colored spree
And earth beneath my feet was dry
I lost you in the spring of our love
But Why? Oh Why? I cannot tell!

I missed you in the autumn that year
When flowers separated from their hold
And birds called listless as moved about
The skies were at their strangest best
And earth beneath my feet infirm
I lost you in the spring of our love
But Why? Oh Why? Some thoughts compel!

I yearned for you in winter that year
When plants were bare and standing stark
The birds too vanished from skies laden
With mist and fog that clouds gathered
And earth beneath my feet just hard
I lost you in the spring of our love
But Why? Oh Why? The pain so hurt!

I lost you somewhere in the ravages of time
If space allowed not each our existence
I lost you sometime in thoughtless expression
Which perhaps hurt the depths of our beings
I lost you somehow in fumbling why
And whom can I ask who knows not why

But then, I lost you in the spring of our love
Oh Why? That I may hurt, you did not tell! !
Yours, indeed a greater love lost - for me
Lost in the spring of our love
Such love that no future
Spring, summer or autumn shall know to lose!

Author's comments:
I just lost you so easily in the spring of our love, without words to say just why! Sometimes, ego, pride, doubt and jealosy uproot relationships But believe me, the other is richer than I, for not having lost me in the least. I belong forever, with all the love and affection I have felt and will always feel
