the night of sorrow

This happened to me
& maybe to

Sometimes I
wonder if
you look down
& see me

How far is it
& one day
I pray I
will see you

Before you left
I meant to say
I appreciate you

how much you mean
to me

My throat is
these days

It was unexpected
It happened when
I was not looking

I was not thinking
of you
the day you died
I was busy at work
can I be that honest

The call came

I hurt
I hurt really bad

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
