“Farewell to an Old Lover”

I wrote this new poem for those who are lamenting over a past love or a negative experience in the past. At the end of the poem, the poet is optimistic about the possibility of a future romance or a bright new adventure.

“Farewell to an Old Lover”

I flirt with life
I end up with Love, the garden of earthly delights
Endurance subdues my heart
Like a lion in the forest

I flirt with life
I let go of all my worries
Life is now cool
Like a flowing river at dawn

I flirt with life
I know it is true
You can’t tell me otherwise
The rose on the other side of the river will bloom again
