Wearing The Flaws - Poem by Gerry Legister

We have lost even this beautiful friendship,
No one ever saw us when we were close,
Walking hand in hand in good companionship,
Now in the distance only our shadows cross.

Night brings a covering down upon our world,
And I still see from my window your shadow,
Standing in the sunny silhouette of bight gold,
Piercing through the morning light as an arrow.

I am wearing the flaws painfully upon my heart
Reminiscing all the joys of mine that you know,
Always thinking about you before we had part,
It only gets harder after I watch you finally go.

Wearing the flaws rolled up into hurt emotions,
In the pain and anguish of mine that you feel,
Receding through the dark evening devotions,
The memories made me see how we had fail.

The shadows fell and fade away in the twilight
It was a gift to the cold and the moment had gone
I remember you with my bruised heart
Living with the flaws that made me fell down.
