The Young Prince

"... and thus was the young prince deprived of love. He then wandered on, lonely beyond belief, searching for love. Perhaps he will find it; one knows not. He hath found one of kindness, compassion, and beauty, but she is not his. He has found others, of intelligence and beauty, charming beyond belief, but they are not his. And again, mayhap he will find someone who will be his; one never knows."

Written March 17, 1985.
