Lonely Boy (to apathy)

~ Lonely Boy ~

Once, there was a boy quite good,
who had no love, but knew he should.
🌿
No love had the "Lonely Boy"
🌿
She'd found him …
kisses softly brought him joy,
unlocked the heart of the "Lonely Boy"
🌿
She taught him faithfully;

then, set him free;
no love to her, just another spree.
🌿
Tho' time slips by,

some hearts won’t mend;
his love burned true until the end.
🌿
So, he died a "Lonely Boy"
🌿
His epitaph was written in

the stars above that shine:
🌿
She said, "I would have loved him
… IF …
I'd only had the time!"

She said, "I would have loved him
… IF …
I'd only had the time!"

We seem to regret it afterwards more than to be grateful when we do have the time to appreciate things and people..
This is a lovely write with a soft melancholic touch to it. I loved reading this 😊👍

..had that love been true...He wouldn't have died a lonely boy. She truly never loved him. What the heart won't release..what the mind always knows.

You are welcome :) :)
this poem kinda reminds me of how society is now. Everybody is so fixed on themselves and being busy, they don't stop to appreciate things around them. American society has this wave of Microwave mentality that corrupts compassion because it convinces people they have no time for anything. "If only I had the time," expresses to me she saw no use in giving her time. How despicable, but I wonder how many people are guilty of being this way, but won't admit it.

Thought provoking write.

Thanks for posting!

T_T this is so beautiful and sad at the same time. Feel sorry for him though. Everyone should experience love but anyway, I love it and keep up the good work.
