The Stone man and the Woman

The stone man stands

The stone man is still

The stone man remains in place

Cold is his emotions

Emotionless he remains

Nor does he care

Not for a while

Not since the day the girl came

Here she came, stunning and beautiful

Esmeralda walked by the stone man

But…

The stone man stands

The stone man is still

The stone man remains in place

Cold is his emotions

Emotionless he remains

Nor does he care

Not for a while

Not since the day the girl came

When the stone man saw Beatrice

He was stunned by her beauty

He loved her bright blue eyes

He loved her long brown hair

But…

The stone man stands

The stone man is still

The stone man remains in place

Cold is his emotions

Emotionless he remains

Nor does he care

Not for a while

Not since the day the girl came

The stone man tries to speak

But he can't

Speechless he must remain

But he knows he must hurry

For Christine will not stay

Soon the girl leaves

Making the stone man sad

But still…

The stone man stands

The stone man is still

The stone man remains in place

Cold is his emotions

Emotionless he remains

Nor does he care

Not since the day the girl came

But now that Helen is gone

The stone man feels like crumbling

But he can't

Because he must stand

He must stand strong

And carry on
