The Reason Why

Contributed by KatalinaRose on Saturday, 27th April 2019 @ 08:14:21 PM in AEST
Topic: anguished

Do you remember when we first met?
That day I have yet to forget,
I sat at a table staring ahead
While not a word to me was ever said.

Then suddenly, you had come on by,
Deciding it was worth giving me a try,
We were soon friends before I knew,
I realized that there wasn/'/t a thing I wouldn/'/t do for you.

And every year on fall festival day,
By you is where I/'/d always stay,
With joy so pure-all could see
That there was nowhere else I would rather be.

And that is how it always went,
With you Therese my time I/'/d spent,
Never had I dreamed this would end,
I always thought I could face all God would send.

A cross I/'/ve carried three long years,
Is that if this misunderstanding is not cleared,
I will of lost a precious treasure,
I will of lost you Therese-my friend forever.

For me this foreshadowing always looms overhead,
So on careful grounds I/'/ve continued to tread,
And until I can make this right
I will always do my best to continue this fight.

This is why I do not go,
For I can not let any pain show,
It/'/ll only prove I can/'/t move on
Nor accept the fact that my friend is gone.

Holding back the tears, the pain, all the while trying to make sure everythingís all good, even when you know itís not (I know the feeling all too well). Beautifully written, deeply felt. Take care and God bless,

Sounds like you really effed up. Hope you work it out, man.

I can tell you want to. I hope she sees that as well. Everyone effs up. No reason to wreck two lives over a moment in time.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
