Letter From Afar

I am the man you once knew
I have come to you many times, but
You turn and go - Sometimes I think
You see me, so I call your name...

Again you just look away
We have sat talking for hours on end
Laughing and cudling over the moon
Of Parador's descend
Why do you ignore me so?
For this I had to go

Another responded that I knew
Your blood must run too
The light appeared and dawned
On me
The images I leave are chilling and...
Yet not

These words I share with you
To let you know I still care
Let it go and do not dispair
For I am still near
Happy days pleased
Our passing yesterdays

I'm finding that there's no need
To explain
You already know who
I am
Look in your heart and
The answers will come

I shall see you again
When our paths cross
In the wilderness
Flowers in your hair
Swinging with your feet
In the air

I came here to be able
To express my Love
For you as one does
You'll remember me with
A Love that's true

Beautiful and fun the
Life of the party
We stood by the pear tree
Just relaxing, maybe it was
A peach tree, but it
Was you and me

The car was my star and
It took me far
You always treated me
I sat on the steps to
Place my bet

You didn't know
So I had to go
I love your fiesty fits and
Being the blacksheep never
Really fit
Did it?

You'll know me by my
For all that knew me
You included would say
You could see it from
A mile away

Even today
I know you know me
If not now

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
