Foolish Pride Poem by Barry Jablonski


As I watched her walk away
I thought of witty things to say
She took from me, my heart & soul
While I stood spouting something droll

I could have begged, or even pleaded
Although I doubt she would have heeded
Those words of love I wanted to say
Just wouldn't come out that fateful day

And as I watched my true love leave
I wondered if I would ever believe
The words of love whispered in my ear
By someone else I might hold dear

Too soon my love was out of sight
She's gone forever into the night
If only I could have swallowed my pride
She might still be here by my side
