There once was a young man of twenty,
in love with a girl of sixteen.
He thought they'd last forever,
but the girl was simply too green.
She told him, 'I love another;
my love for you has faded.'
Her admission broke his heart,
and left his outlook jaded.
The young girl feared for his safety.
His love was far greater than hers.
But she could not stay in a relationship,
With his feelings unreturned.
So she bid the young man farewell,
Wishing him all the best.
Her sleep that night became troubled,
With visions of a knife in his chest.
Some people love forever;
Some but a little while.
Some memories leave us bitter;
While others bring a smile.
To the young man of just twenty,
This does not mean the end.
You've made some great new memories,
And will one day love again.
