I wave goodbye to hope

as all the lonely do

so far am I from touch of lovers hand

as I am from a loving heart that once was you


I am but choiceless to bear this unwanted sorrow

dressed in hurtful inflictions of soul damaging truth

and everything that once was like a summer sun to me declines

as does my time now that it departs from youth. 

◄ Ruined house, neglected garden midsummer

Phew! ►

A poignant poem that's rich in words and emotions. I can fully resonate with this. Have been there, have felt it. Hope is just hopeless at times and unwanted sorrow chooses us at times.
Another fine poem, Grace.
