You And Now - Poem by Margaret Ann Newcomb

I wonder can you hear me.
I thought of you today.
For a long time.
Sometimes I come upon myself just standing,
still, not knowing what to do now.
Sometimes I come upon myself wandering
aimlessly around the house, waiting
for someone to tell me what to do.
I could paint, but I don't want to.
Too much getting all that stuff out.
I could write but I don't want to.
I'm not done thinking of you yet.
As if thinking of you will
solve some great mystery,
If I just thought of you long enough.
Perhaps I'll ride my bike.

    this is a beautiful poem. Loneliness especially after loss of a loved one in one way or another, leaves us confused and dazed and uncertain of what step to take next. Fearful of failure....You have expressed alot of raw emotion here and you have done it well, , , , , , , , , marci. :) (Report) Reply
