Farewell
by miss abagail mannering

I loved you once,
not long ago.
the pain at times,
still grieves me so.
The person called Mike
I came to know,
performed for me,
quite a show.

The laughs we shared
were like a tonic,
but in the end
were like Bubonic.
The lines you said
became unharmonic
and the letters you wrote
were spelled by phonic.

I stood by you,
though you lied to me.
I'd hoped someday
that you would see
how very much I cared
over these past years, three...
but now I know
that will never be.

So, no I bid you
and the 'missus,' "Farewell."
For, if ever you cared for me
i could not tell.
If down life's road we meet..
"Swell."
And  if not..."Oh, well."

written feb. 5-7 1999 this is the 'follow up poem many of you wanted from I WONDER HOW YOU ARE TONIGHT...i wrote this after i found out that he had taken on a supposed wife (whom i now know he did not). I was heart broke...and the rest, as they say, is history.


 "Some people aren't worth a puddle of ant pee in the middle of a dessert when it's 100 degrees in the shade." -me

It's so sad the games some people play. But in the end, it is they who are the losers.
Great poem!

I have to agree with Denise
But there is hope for someone else I see
Sad the last part surely is
Life has a lot of those Hit and Miss
To many I think
Nevertheless a nice poem you did
would it be so good without him?
I know sometimes the price we pay is to high, way to high.
You have my heart



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

That's the best ending I have heard in a long time
