If I Told You - Poem by DAVID TERRY

If I told you
That I never thought about you
I would be lying
I only think about you
About a hundred times an hour
Give or take a thought
But I didn’t tell you that

If I said to you
That I never wondered about you
I would not be honest
I wonder about you
And if you wonder about me too
Or if you really meant it
But I didn’t say that to you

If I saw you again
That would be awkward
And I would not think what to think
Or what to say
Or even wonder why I could not
Stop staring at you
But I will not see you again

So when I will hear
Of how you moved on
And taken what you wanted all along
I will continue to pray for you both and know
I will not tell or say or wonder or see you
Ever again, no matter what I hear
Because you chose another
