About the Poem
This poem is sad in a way, because the reader is wishing and hoping for the day when she will have her man, forever, yet when the day finally comes, she says no...
|by Wendy Croft|
|There are times, I just have to say
"I wish the world would go away.
And leave my love and his heart
Together with mine, never to part."
We sit alone, underneath the star-filled sky
I look at him and see a flame in his eye
He leans forward and kisses me
I feel his love, now set me free.
We end the kiss, he takes my hand
He slips on a ring, a wedding band
He is down on one knee, and gazes into my eyes
He says "I'd give anything, for you to be my bride."
He looks so sincere, I have to cry
He looks up at me and asks me, "Why?"
I look down at him, but he turns away
I wish he would say something, ask me to stay.
As I slowly turn and walk back towards the car,
I glance back at him and see him point to a star.
"See that star? I wished on that star. To bring you here, to make you
I look up at the star, I remember back to when I wished for this time
To be alone with my love, to feel nothing but free
Now I am with my love, he is down on one knee.
He asked me to love him, to have and to hold,
But yet, I say no by walking away in the cold.
