I Lost My Precious Pearl

I Lost My Precious Pearl

A Poem by Poet Pittinix

It's a poem of love and blues.


For Stacy-Ann

I approached you with sadness and loneliness.

My heart was consumed with distress.

You felt the trauma that I was going through,

And you tried to help me the best way you could.

Honey, you were remarkably patient with me.


Your love shone brightly in my darkest moments.

Why didn’t I listen to your sound advice?

You put up with me beyond the limit,

But I expected you to overlook all my faults.

I lost my precious pearl when you walked away.


You willingly did many good things for me,

But I failed to show my appreciation.

I disregarded the value of your priceless love.

I kept putting you to the test until you gave up.

Now your heart has no feelings for me.


The loving person that I knew has become cold.

I understand the reason for your anger,

But I can’t believe you stopped loving me.

Imagine how I felt when I realized it was over.

No other woman can replace my precious pearl.

We don’t always appreciate what we have till it!s gone and that is a hard lesson to learn. Your stanzas tell me, you certainly appreciate her value now. Nicely composed lines.

Thank you.
If we could undo the hurt we've caused and set it right then we'd never learn our lessons and move forward to become better people. Just my thoughts in response to your beautiful and heartfelt poem.
