Three Lives

Three Lives
By Don Ray Williams

Three lives were crossed, if just by chance,
And he the common link.
He had looked for love, just one romance,
Now two were on the brink.

Now all three knew, that there were two,
Where only one should be.
He grieved, because of what he knew,
And wished the future he could see.

Eventually, he would have to choose,
And one would have to go.
Yes, one would win, and one would lose,
But which one, he did not know.

One happy heart, one broken,
The thought of it made him sick.
He felt bad for the one not chosen,
But which one would he pick?

They both had beauty. They both were smart.
They both had charm and wit.
In both their hands they held his heart,
And neither wanted to release it.

“It is better to have loved and lost”,
That is how the story goes,
He would have one, but at what cost.
Heaven only knows.

He loved them both, could he choose one?
Could he live without the other?
Being in love, it should be fun,
Why does life have to be such a bother.

So three lives crossed by accident,
And the only link was he,
One of the other two, he’d choose one day,
But which one would it be?
Yes,
One of the other two, he’d choose one day,
But which one would it be?
