If He'd Been Here

Topic: EmotionalPoetry

If He'd Been Here


Would I have found wonders

Had he been here to guide

Or would I continue the blunders

I incurred if he had not died


What would he have taught me

Would he have spun great tales

To open my eyes to all I can be

Or scornfully watched all my fails


Truthfully the man was built on strife

He had demons eating away his soul

No matter what he did in his life

Darkness always demanded it's toll


Anger was the path often chosen

No give to his leeway of thought

Tho there were good memories woven

Interlaced into what the Universe brought


There is no hate or loss in my mind

I can't miss what wasn't meant to be

I just wonder what we would find

If he'd been here, just teaching me

This is what I said - not in those words, mind you. Eventually this virus will run its course. You can be concerned and worried, however there are other things going on in the world that are just as serious.

Great write.

So true, they don/'/t have clean water to drink,
which is far worse than any influenza we all know.
And I do not know what a real poem is any more
if it does not speak to anyone, if they feel one day,
they themselves should have said the same thing,
but for some reason they never had.

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. ©
