Undone - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

Look into the mirror
wondering to myself
have the years truly been kind

Catch it there on my cheek
another damn tear
trying to escape

And it aint all been in vain
or hard lessons learned in life
Can't say that I regret anything
other than that moment between you and I
Good bye may have been said
but was it actually meant
Did we give our hearts enough
feels as though
we left so much undone

Do you think 'bout me at all
on nights when it's cold
and loneliness surrounds your world

Is there that little bit
of spark and what if
lingering in you like it is in me

And it aint all been in vain
or hard lessons learned in life
Can't say that I regret anything
other than that moment between you and I
Good bye may have been said
but was it actually meant
Did we give our hearts enough
feels as though
we left so much undone...

    Undone......how i like the way you wrote it Daniel. Someday, i hope, you'll done whatever is stuck in your heart.

    Saying goodbye to a loved one and actually meaning it may be two different things, as you have shown in this well-written and enjoyable poem.

    Love, Fran xx
