I guess I blew it in a really big way,
It'll never be like it was yesterday.
It was nice to have someone who'd listen,
Understand in life what was missing.
It never helps to second guess,
What got it into such a mess.
Things just happen as time goes by,
Often all that's left is a large, loud sigh.
Some people aren't the type to tell,
What went wrong, where it fell.
Me, I like to know it all,
Despite the hurt that might befall.
How do we learn, as we get old,
If things aren't understood or told.
Not quite sure what I did to get here,
But be honest, too much, I fear.
Once you've shared, is there still trust,
Or are you wary of ever giving so much.
Secrets are always safe with me,
The hopes are that mine also will be.
If I had to guess my fault,
I know what it is, by default.
The expectations were never there,
Just some moments and thoughts to share.
So as in life, there are things I'll miss,
My realization has been met with this.
Who ever knows what the future brings,
So "onwards and upwards" to better things.
Thanks for Asking
My vacation was great, thanks for asking,
Spent time with great friends, met at Madam Tussauds for laughing.
Travelled over twelve hundred miles,
Had a thrill and lots of smiles.
Drank some vodka with the boss,
"Love Supreme" in the cab, no loss.
I'm feeling better, thanks for asking,
Got the flu as the plane was landing.
Went to work, had to leave,
Can't help patients when you have to heave.
Was home sick for three days,
If only I knew what would hit next in my haze.
I'm okay, thanks for asking,
Sitting in the cold, enjoying the basking.
The sun is shining into my home,
Bringing it up to a balmy freezing zone.
The town says it could be couple of days,
How long will friends let me shower at their place.
Mother nature has left her card,
Thanks for asking, was that so hard.
Remember the next time you're in your own world,
There may be someone whose life has unfurled.
Who needs a hello after a roam,
A "How have you been", "Glad to have you home."
Life is more than what's your stead,
Your word may be all they need.
To see their way from life's dread,
Back to a place you have led.
The good and bad and our dispair,
Is always benefited when we share.
Not always a success, but always worth trying,
Is to just say something, and hear Thanks for asking.
