Moving Too Slowly - Poem by John I Nash

Too young to know I was moving too slowly.
You wanted something more than I could give.
I only lived for the thought of your love.
Moving to slowly.
I was a man-child that was feeling alone.
Moving too slowly to capture your desire.
You were lonely and needed something other.
I was moving too slowly, If only you told me.
In the pain of young love, not knowing your need, not seeing.
I was moving too slowly.
No love was stronger than mine,
You never knew how powerful my passion was.
I was moving too slowly.
You looked to another, no brother to quench your thirst.
No matter the damage he managed,
I was moving too slowly.
The hurt of seeing you with another, shattered my heart.
Never knowing I was moving too slowly.
No trust have I, taken away that day, left with a poisoned soul I never told.
I was moving too slowly.
The realization of what was wrong came when I said goodbye.
I was moving too slowly.
I only know where we were, I only know where we could have gone.
Had I not moved too slowly.
