I wrote a poem

I read a poem yesterday
it nearly broke my heart
it spoke of lovers loved and lost
they lived too far apart

I read a poem yesterday
it said she won’t live forever
but she makes the world a better place
please don’t let me outlive her

I read a poem yesterday
it made me think of you
when the colour of my world was gold
before you turned it sad soft blue

I read a poem yesterday
it told me what I’ve got to give
all the splintered thoughts I’ve yet to think
and those dead years I’ve yet to live

I wrote a poem yesterday
it tells of our first kiss
and the wondrous time we spent together
and how it ended just like this

* from the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, Alloway, Scotland
