If That Is Understood - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We bring to each other what we have,
At that moment.
And each moment that we bring,
May not come from places familiar.
If that is understood...
Why can't we seem to meet
For moments we keep to understand
There will be moments
When we rather not be near each other!
Instead of taking moments discussing misunderstandings...
Let us take those moments not to be found!

    Sensible and eloquent writing. Everyone needs space, and some of that space is well used in trying to spend the moment seeing how misunderstandings can be avoided..... well said. t x (Report)Reply
