Never Know


It was a glorious spring day.
At the beach with friends watching the day slip away.
Two lovers caught in a summer haze.

The bikes lay in the sand.
I was a boy on his way to becoming a man-
Standing at the edge of the surf - no man's land.

The sun behind me, i heard someone running.
Saw your shadow behind me coming.
Split second choice - I stayed put standing.

You knocked me into the.waves.
You were laughing. You thought it was great.
I swore to myself I'd never tell you that it was faked.

You needled me all day,
- it was a higlight to you-
How I got knocked over by you.
All I could think was, if you only knew.

Now those days are long gone.
And after the storms abated I found myself alone.
Me and those many things that you will never know.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
