Unrequited Love

Unrequited Love

Unrequited Love

He speaks
they reply
do they really listen
or ever question why

She speaks
they walk on
maybe they should’ve listened
to what’s really going on

He’s old
he’s wise
does he speak the truth
or is some of it just lies

She young
she has lived
and has many experiences
of life she is willing to give

They talk
they don’t hear
if they listened
it would become clear

She loves him
he does not see
if someone made him listen
he would only disagree

He was heartbroken
he lost his wife
he will have no other
to help him through his life

She shares laughter
she shares pain
she shares her all
with nowt to gain

He shares bitterness
he shares tears
he shares his emotions
and all his fears

He can not love
well not any more
life has wronged him
and ripped his very core

She would cry
she wouldn’t dare
she would not want
to show she cares

They age
they have no time
it’s the world they live in
it is such a crime
