About the Poem
Love does not always end with happily ever after. Sometimes it just ends and then the hurting really begins. I hope this never happens to you, but if it does . . . read this and know you are not alone. Others have walked before you.
The Joke's On Me
|by Judy Burnette|
|I keep waiting for the phone to ring
Yet I know it won't be you;
I try to fill my life with busyness
Yet all I do is think of you.
What became of us
And all our dreams and plans;
How could you turn and walk away
As I watched our castles turn to sand?
Do you never even miss me
Don't you long to caress my face;
How could you forget so easily
And You I can't erase?
I want to be in your arms again
To see the laughter in your eyes;
But I guess the joke's on me
And Oh! Was I surprised!
