Minuet Antique

I wrote you a minuet antique

That wasn’t bold, perhaps too meek

The tune in which I expressed

How long your love has been my quest.

But now I know I’m doomed to fail

Your heart is not some holy grail

That I can seize with adoration

A love without an explanation.

But I will live and I won’t cry

About the choices you decide

In love there is no guarantee

I now know you’ll never love me.

It’s rather sad it’s now the end

Perhaps you’ll treat me as a friend

And a true friend is hard to find

I’ll try to be forever kind.
