I Cannot Attend On Your Wedding Day.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

The last time i saw you
was when you were still a kid
holding tightly tn your
mama's skirt,

life has kept me busy
constant travels make me forget
plans are many mountains
and victories are few like
diamonds kept preciously inside
a locker,

and then i get a card and i open it.
you're getting married and
it will be your grand day
and that i must attend so that
we can all be happier again

but life has kept me busy
constant travels make me forget
plans are many mountains
and victories are few like
diamonds kept preciously inside
a locker,

oh, i get puzzled, i forget faces and
names because i want to stay here forever
and there are so many things missing
markers removed, boundaries kept

i am old, and it is sad.
