She was the greatest love that never was
Though oft I held her closely in my dreams;
There too, quite shamed to plead my lonely cause,
I idled still, enmeshed in many schemes:
Might I one day accost her in the park
My ready gamp to shield her from the rain,
An underground where she might yet embark
And I, the gallant, help her board a train?
Each meeting so contrived yet none thereof
Could reassure that heart fair set to burst,
I never found the strength to press my love
Though in my timid mind, did what I durst.
As time begat more time, she slipped away,
Yet where she went to, none could ever say.
