Questions - Poem by David Taylor

Did I loose my touch?
Have I lost your trust?
Are these poems all the same
saying one thing again, again?

Did I loose my voice?
Have I lost your ear?
Are these words that fall
meeting with a stony wall?

Have my eyes gone dark?
Did you let me make a mark?
Is this verse in any way
helping make a better day?

Can my heart find what is true?
Did I ever reach the heart of you?
What can a poem say
a ray of hope to light the way?

What are words if they can’t do
all the things I pray for you?
