I hope you are all in a good shape, sound mind and spirit amidst the threats posed by COVID-19. Well, just a few days ago, my nephew, who just graduated from senior high school, asked me to pen a poem for his ultimate love named Ana. A high school love!Haha!
I hope that this poem reaches her attention and may she take this positively for all he wanted is tell her how much he loves and adores her. Indeed, love does find a way. Hope you appreciate this simple gesture of love.
I was a lonely soul before you came.
Waiting for someone to be in sight.
Then, I learned your lovely name.
Suddenly, everything felt so right!
It started with a plain conversation.
Knowing each other is our main goal.
As days passed, it led to infatuation.
Mending my broken heart and soul!
Nights became days when we talked.
As if the world turned motionless,
Bound in a place I’ve never walked,
Stunned by the beauty you possess!
But, like some stories I hated to hear.
I didn’t expect that you would grow coldly.
The least you wanted was me to be near.
And all I remembered was your sorry.
Ana, even if you push me away,
As you tell me to forget you,
My love will be here to stay,
And it always remains true!
