If I had never loved, I never would have cried
‘All things come full circle’ said I
‘I’ll just gather my things now that I’m homeward bound’
And she sat stone faced, daring not to make a sound
Somehow I knew we’d be strangers forever more
As soon as I walked out the door
Now I hear the drizzle of rain outside my window
With a voice that fills my head like an echo
I wonder what she is doing on this day
If chance brought us together, what would I say?
I would surely be a different man in her eyes
From the corner of her mind where memory lies
Back then was a time of innocence
Unafraid we were of the consequence
A moment of time that will never be again
She helped to shape the man that I am
How could time rob me so surely of this memory
Every day brings another loss of mental clarity
But a sense of who I was always remains
Even so long after the growing pains
Still there are questions left unasked
And I resign myself to the torturous task
Of wondering about a love that died
And simply wondering …why?

I am forever asking this famous question of "Why??"!!  There is soo much I wish I knew the answers but, I may never know!! Keep your chin up!!  Sometimes we just don't know!!  This was a nice poem!!

Take Care
Bridgette


 Creation of woman from the rib of Man: She was not made from his head to top him; nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him; but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be loved."

I think Love occasionally takes a nap
but it never dies unless it's been killed
...Fact?...no...
just my thoughts

I've found that asking the 'why' question is not productive......so I stopped asking?!!!
Great poem!
