Unrequited Love

Maybe in another world,
In another life, you would
Love me and take me
To be your wife.
Maybe we’d be happy
With children sat by our feet,
Then we’d be even happier
When grandchildren made
Our lives complete.
Maybe we’d rock away
On the porch with matching
Wooden chairs, and everytime
You stared at me I’d lose
My breath- as if I’d climbed
All the stairs! We’d be
Together till our very last
Breaths and be content
In the knowledge that neither
Of us were loved less.

But it can’t be in this life,
For while I know your name
You do not know mine,
I wish you did for I think
That Chris and Catharine go
Nicely together, and really would
Add to this rhyme.
How I wish you could be mine.
