Don’t cry over me anymore



Don’t be sad, we were not meant to be

It was a forbidden fling

Not love, but just a phase


I walk along the restless sea

Thinking of what might have been

Elsewhere inΒ  time and place


My true love is beside me

He knows me in and out

And I keep in his pace


Goodbye for ever to a friend

As friends we can not be

This phase had but to sadly end

So I will set you free

    The bitter sweet content of this poem, particularly in combination with the picture of the sea, touches me deeply in ways you could not have known.

    Beautiful poem


  2. This is lovely. I’m glad I found it. Incidentally, images of the sea appeal very strongly to me too – I guess that the British and the Dutch have the sea stamped in our DNA.
