I See A Man: - Poem by Sherry Painter
I am looking down at the water,
Wishing for someone to talk to.
As if the Good Lord had been listening to my wish,
When I lifted my head up from looking down below,
I saw a man,
He's walking toward me,
In the next second,
We started talking,
And I fell in love with.
He says goodbye to soon,
And then I say;
'Will you come back? '
'Yes, ' He had said.
The next day,
I went back to where I meet him,
First a second went by,
Then the second turned into a minuet,
Then the minuet turned into a half hour,
Then the half hour turned into a full hour,
Then the full hour turned into a full day,
Then the full day turned into a full night,
Then the full night turned into a full week,
Then the full week turned into a full month,
Then the full month turned into a full year.
And so the years went by and by and by and by,
And so did I,
Day after day.
I often wondered what he thought of me,
Wondered if he even remembered me,
Wondered if he even felt the same as I did, and still do,
Wondered if he'd ever come back to me,
Wondered what I mite have said to make him not return,
To make him notcome back to me.
I have now passed,
And I haunt the bridge we meet on,
Still waiting for him to return to me...
