For What Lies Hidden

A collection of all my poetry in an order I think makes reading it even more fun and exciting.


81. Never Before, Never Again

Never before

Did I shut the door

On such a person,

On such a friend,

As he.


You may ask why,

Or you may ask how,

But the answer is simple

And that is

I don’t know.


So many times

The question has circled my brain.

Pondering and wondering,

Why it happened

The way it did.


Could it be that I was blind,

That I was self-obsessed?

Or that I was ignorant,

And somehow possessed?

I don’t know.


Trying to turn back time

And alter the clocks

Which tick on,

Waiting for no man

And no woman.


He was great

To me and to everyone.

He cared more

Than most ever did

To help us step forward.


And still time goes on,

Even though the door

Is shut firm and fast.

Mistakes I have made

To be repeated never again.
