I May Be Thinking Of You Now - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

And I may be thinking of you now,
But tomorrow...
That thought's gonna go!

And I may want you more than ever,
This hour...
With a ticking that's slow.

I don't know.

But you're not gonna rob my time!
After all we've been through!

And you,
May see me and ask...
If I,
Am doing okay.

I am!

And you...
May wanna stray,
Just to see...
If you can get in my way.

No...
That door has long been closed.
Not to be reopened.

And we won't open it.
I refuse...
To pay more dues,
Today!
Baby...bay-be!

And that door has closed,
Keeping my heart from being decayed.
Baby...bay-be!

And we won't open it.
I refuse...
To pay more dues,
Today!

Baby...bay be!
No we won't open it.
I refuse...
To pay more dues,
Today!
