The Hesitation Blues

'You're making me happy -
it's so hard to believe.
You're making me happy
and I might have to leave.

I can't see the future,
so I really can't stay.
I can't see the future,
so I'm going away.

Some day we'll meet each other -
we might even mention regret.
Some day we'll meet each other
and wonder how close we could get.

You're making me happy -
please don't think I'll forget.
You're making me happy,
I'm just not happy yet.'

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
