You loved and learned
You loved and learned I glanced over the room Seeing who was there oour meyes met our hearts beat We said our hellos We went out I wasnt a rich lady you were from a home of prestige Yet the difference was meager to the heart I tried to be who you wanted I could offer a meal and an ear Youe caring in a way Yet you looked down on my stature. I broke free of the fallen house Got a slightly nicer place Hoped to see your face So you could feel more at home. Yet you told me you wanted someone else Told me on the phone Thjs other girl was for you A Girl of the well to do world Our lives drifted apart cupids arrow didnit stir your heart Your other left you Yet now alone you stay Your heart is your teacher Beating you should have allowed your fondess to show Yet you knew nothing of my heart Yet I am still not so rich yet still good Yet , I thought If he had returned Would I have taken him back Yet his ego stood in his way My heart mended and healed Love taught me to be true to one I care for A broken heart can mend Ye t to stray and leave One cannot always return as a mend By Doris Ridge Mendlovitz
