Romance is Not Dead

Love Blossoms

I've spent years being envious
of couples walking along
holding hands,
wanting to know that feeling.


They wear smiles
as they stroll in the sunshine
while I hide in the shade,
my face in the shadows of sadness.

I dream of love but sometimes

I wonder if my hopes
are just fantasies,
too far-fetched to come true.


Until you changed my outlook
and proved that romance is not dead;
my heart has found a home
for the first time in a long time.
