I walked a thousand miles
In sombre solitude
To reach the very core of your heart
As close as my conflicted mind could allow!
I poured a thousand gazes
At your gorgeous self
To drink in your audacious beauty
As much as your sensitivity could bestow!
I thought a thousand times
Just to be sure
My poor and wretched soul
Was in love with a princess, beautiful!
I wrote a thousand letters
Only to tear them up
As it seemed a story too good to be true
But eventually I found the courage to do the inevitable!
I knew I was late when I saw you:-
As you held his hand;
Unaware you walked past me as you beamed
And I stood there helpless and forlorn!
I uttered a thousand prayers
As I wished you happiness
While I got drowned in sadness
And away you went; then … you were gone!
