But You Walked Out


We’ve never talked before
I only know you from the home videos where
I was a baby, not knowing what was going on.
You were my Godfather
You are supposed to be a part of my life.
But you walked out.
And now I’m old enough to be mad and sad.
Remember making me laugh, holding me,
Feeding me, making me happy? !
Maybe my life would have turned out differently so far,
If you were here in my life,
But you walked out.
I don’t even know if you love me.
I didn’t know that all those smiles would soon cause tears
Because you were my God father
But you walked out.
I don’t know where you are, I don’t even know if you remember me!
You could have seen me grow up to be become a wonderful young lady.
You could have seen me get confirmed, you could have seen what I looked like at homecoming
And turnabout!
But you walked you.
Leaving me with a million questions, that I toss aside.
With a million tears, that I wash up.
Who knows what joy you could have brought to my life
Because in those home movies, you always made me giggle and smile.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
