I Am Not Dead - Poem by david lessard

I am not dead,
Just gone away;
Like a vacation,
I'm back to stay.

Until I get tired,
And take some time off,
To get my s... together,
To get rid of this cough.

Did you miss me?
I missed you, I did;
You've not been far from mind,
You sweet, lovely, silly, kid.

I have not passed away,
I haven't been found dying;
I've been on leave, so to speak,
And the poetry's been trying.

Trying, to find its voice,
Trying to find its flavor;
So that a reader will enjoy the work,
And its theme, they can savor.

I am not dead,
Just gone away;
Like the common cold, I'm back,
And it's here, that I will stay.

    So glad you are back! Yes I like your poems and they are a joy to savor - I'm not yet dead too so let's keep on - you keep writing them I will keep on savoring the flavor. (Report) Reply
