Four O’Clock

"In a Sentimental Mood" - Julian Landini, 2012
“In a Sentimental Mood” – Julian Landini, 2012

a cup

of tea

and something

sweet

as the

clock

strikes four

to keep

this lonely

heart

from falling

apart

under the

weight

of care

upon

worrisome

care.

 

a sip

a nibble

a sigh

a tear

a thought

a memory

a regret…

oh dear;

the world

is too

much

with me

far too

soon

and i

am weary

of life

of love

of longing

for things

for hearts

i cannot

have…

 

or so

the world

tells me.

 

a cup

of tea

and something

sweet

for one:

and i

wish

you were

here

to share.
