I step out into the darkness of the night,
I see one lone wishing star, glistening so bright.
I reach out to touch it, a gesture like a prayer,
I whisper," This is my last wish, please make him care",
A single tear glides down my cheek,
For I know that I won't get the wish I seek.
Being hopelessly romantic, I self destruct within,
My sorrow embraces me like a friend.
I whisper his name, while my tears fall like rain,
My heart still beats despite the pain.
I softly start to sing, Our Song,
The only thing that still remains, for all else is gone.
His memory like a restless spirit, haunts my mind,
How could he just up and leave me behind?
I held on to the love, so tightly, in total despair,
Now I finally realize, there was nothing really there.
The world is made for lovers, not for those who must play solitaire,
It has no time for the lonely, or values half a pair.
So wishing star, this is my last wish, my last try,
Then I will put this romantic heart away and let it slowly die.

Music: Only The Lonely

You really know how to tear the heart up. Let's hope for the comfort of that last wish. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 7/15/2008
That last wish should give free way for another first wish, as a cyclical wave of love comes around and around until we finally go like a champagne cork with that last pop! and a long deep last breath.

The sense of loss is palpable, and the loneliness and the hope. Well written.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/14/2008
It is true when we are hurt by love that falls apart it is hard to explain how badly we want a do over but only someone who is also hurt or has been hurt like this understands.

Well done SC
Reviewed by Rose Rideout 7/14/2008
Your last wish will be filled as for all those lonely hearts, for there is a match for each one of us SC. I love your writes and the music you pick is so perfect for the words you have shared. Thank you.

Newfie Hugs, Rose
