I Wish You Only Love
Author: Marion Carroll


I loved you with the purest heart,
of that, you can believe.
I would have loved you, anyway.
There was no need to deceive.

I wish you only sunlit days,
and gardens filled with flowers;
walks along the golden shores and
heartfelt talks, for hours.

My broken heart will mend in time
from this unexpected fall:
twas better to have loved and lost
than not to have loved at all.

Put a ring upon her finger,
and treasure all you share.
I never wanted half your heart,
and neither did she, there.

I wish you only moonlit skies
and diamond stars above.
May your life with her be filled with joy,
I wish you only love.

That's so nice

MC....I re-read this poem throughout the months of February and March, and I just got to read it again. Now, this is wonderful. Learning how to move on even when it's hard to do so. I commend you for mustering up enough courage in trying to make the best of things regardless of the event that took place in your life.

Remarkable poem!
