A simplistic, yet sad love story
"On Cedar Creek" by jaybird1
On Cedar creek I oft would roam.
It ran along, below my home.

One day I met, across that stream
a fair haired lass 'twas like a dream.

I went across that little creek,
walked hand in hand and kissed her cheek.

It was not long, I swelled with pride,
for then I knew, she'd be my bride.

Years later on we chose to wed.
She filled my heart, my home and bed.

For many years our dream we shared,
'till death did call and I was spared.

Cedars still grow, grow here and there.
The birds still sing, in fragrant air.

O! Cedar creek for you I yearn.
Please, my dear Lord, let me return.



Author Notes
A virtual love story, some truth, some fiction.You did it
your way, I did it my way-Jaybird
