Lonely Poem

Chasing After Unrequited Love

I wrote this poem after losing one special person in my life. That unrequited love left a bittersweet feeling in my heart. There are days when I feel lost, like I'm floating alone in a boat at open sea, wondering if I will ever find true love.

Take My Hand

I thought that I was chasing dreams
While I was walking down those fast streams.
Chasing after love that will never be,
Now I am left stranded at deep open sea.

Will I ever find a way back to the shore?
All that I ask for is nothing more,
Just someone who can gently take my hand
And walk with me on the soft beach sand.

Very nice, Alokin. I think virtually everyone can identify with this as most of us have had a similar disappointment in our past, some even in the present I am sure. I was given good advice by my grandfather when a boy. He said, "Gary, someday you will want to settle down and find a wife. When you do, always look at how she treats her parents. If she respects them, she will always respect you. Also, marry your best friend as friendship outlasts everything else." I followed his wise advice and in spite of hardships along the way, I could not have a happier marriage or a more loving spouse. I did marry my best friend. Blessings, Gary
