The Last Message, Fortunino Matania (1916)

The Last Message, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Embers within my heart no longer glow
Events past with you, mine a clouded view
So difficult for me to picture you
Thought that forever you would be my beau
That through the years together we would grow
The world has changed yet I don’t have a clue
Words to save us pain wish I only knew
It is hard for me to bring such sorrow

Dearest darling it gives me no comfort
Knowing that you are struck with such great pain
Must be brief believe the French word is mort
As for our relationship there’s no strain
Soon my box will be stacked aboard at port
Rest assured darling you didn’t cause this bane
