Feelings Once Had - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one can make anyone feel,
What has been made to fade away.
Or take for granted,
One's feelings once had for another...
Expressed with honesty, devotion,
And sincerity felt to stay and remain...
If the exchange of the same,
Had not been shown to be respected.
Yet expected regardless of the neglect.
With beliefs kept,
Whatever feelings one may have had...
Easily detected and never to suspect,
Thought to require less attention to them given...
Everyone wishes to have what they feel validated.
Or give mention with concern of it known.
It's human nature.
Like seasons that come and go,
Unappreciated although reminisced...
To remember them for what they were,
With wishes that are missed.
People also can be like this,
When the time comes for them...
To find reasons to move on.
And leave behind them what has gone.
Without feelings or thoughts to prolong about it.
