It's about a girl who is celebrating her birthday she is excited when her boyfriend is coming back from Rome. she phones him just as he is driving home unfortunately a truck hits him and he dies.

The month of July

 

It was my party

It was my day

T’was the month of July

I’ve been waiting since May.

 

My love was coming home that day

He returned from Rome because:

It was my party

It was my day

T’was the month of July

I’ve been waiting since May.

 

I couldn’t wait to see him then

I phoned him just as he was turning around the bend

Those words that he spoke were his final words

Before a truck hit him.

When it was my party

And my day

In the month of July

I’ve been waiting since May.

This was a great poem and the repetition was very good. The ending was sad, but it was emotional and I liked it. This poem tells a story, underneath the words, which I found clever. Keep up tge good work! :)

thank you so much, i'm glad you liked it. Most Poetry isn't all about rhyme, rhyme brings rhythm to poetry but i know poetry that sounds like a conversation, no rhyming at all and it sold for millions. :D
