Sorry You Had To Go


Oh friend of mine
why did you have to go
I had written to you for so long
and I didn't even know
all I know is
what I will remember and say
so you have passed on
on the first day of May
1997 is the year
and no longer could I see so clear
I was going to come
to lunch at noon
and I was hoping
it would have been soon
I feel like that I should
take some of the blame
and something should be on my name
the only thing I feel at fault for
is I was too late
I did not s succeed
in the task of that date
so on the 28th day of May
I'm really here to say
I'm sorry you had to go

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,
