Passing by, you held my eye,

Now hours later I still sigh.


Instead of making sure we met

I'm made to live with this regret.


How many times on this old Earth

Is love condemned to this still-birth?


Love's own strangers passing by,

Left to wonder - left to sigh.

Oh - you must be our poetic version of James Blunt! This is lovely. I'm trying to think of times this has happened to me, but I'm stumped - the good ones must dodge me...

No - I tell a lie - I remember once - Euston Station, when I was in my 20s. It was electric and funny cos we both turned round to have another look. Sadly I was getting a train and he was a commuter - probably with a wife and kids...

"Is love condemned to this still-birth".
There's a hell of a lot of women out there who've missed their chance with me and you, MC.
