Now your time is up

Now all hope is truly lost

Now doves have all flown

Like a lost balloon

All my hopes and dreams are gone

Up in puffs  of smoke



I invested all

My hopes in your future

Blown up they’re all gone

    I am left speechless with these haiku. I hope the doves come back and you can fill a new balloon with your beautiful spirit. xxx
