Why I Stopped By - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Forget the things we both have done.
Forget our trading of nasty tongues.
Forget your second thoughts.
As I have forgotten mine.
And the gossip people talk,
We allowed to waste our time.

I stopped by...
Because I know you better,
Than others do.
I stopped by...
To let you know I care for you.
Why I stopped by?
I want to hear it just from you...
What it is from me you wish,
Only I can give to you...
I'm hoping you have missed.

I know it isn't easy,
Trying to keep your mind cool...
When I've been childish and a fool.
I know it isn't easy,
Putting up with me and others with funky attitudes.
I know it hasn't been easy,
Doing things to get them done.
When no one is around to offer,
To understand where you are coming from.
I do!
Now that I comprehend,
What it is you have been through.

I stopped by...
Because I know you better,
Than others do.
I stopped by...
To let you know I care for you.
Why I stopped by?
I want to hear it just from you...
What it is from me you wish,
Only I can give to you...
I'm hoping you have missed.

Forget the things we both have done.
Forget our trading of nasty tongues.
Forget your second thoughts.
As I have forgotten mine.
And the gossip people talk,
We allowed to waste our time.
