Followed By A Sunset (Better Kept To Forget) - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It becomes for some,
To realize too late...
Time to all of us given moves forward.
And not in reverse to replace or appreciate,
A doing one should have done.
Each day comes to arrive to leave.

No time awaits for anyone to contemplate,
A taking an advantage of it...
For purposes to reschedule what is convenient.
At a later more appropriate date.

Too many perceive opportunities to them given,
Can be kept on hold until decisions are made.
Too many perceive opportunities to them given,
Can not be taken away from them to fade.

And too many perceive,
What they have been given to receive...
Comes without a dawn,
To be followed by a Sunset that comes to go.
With a leaving them behind along with their shadows.

Too many perceive,
Any excuse they make or alibis made to believe...
Will be accepted with apologies.
No matter who is affected by their negligence.

'I assumed you would always be here for me.'

~I was. And had been.
Until I awakened to realize,
You were nowhere around to be found...
When my need for you,
Disappeared from existence.~

It becomes for some,
To realize too late...
No time awaits for anyone to contemplate,
A taking an advantage of it...
For purposes to reschedule what is convenient.
At a later more appropriate date.

'But...
I value our relationship.'

~And when was this decided? ~

'I assumed you knew.'

~I've learned not to live on assumptions.
Or await for another Sunset,
With beliefs to keep...
Your consistent disappointments.
And disappointments I have found,
Are better kept to forget,
Than accepting my regrets.~
