Farewell to Arms

I was looking for you while I went for coffee this morning
Searching every face
Again the wrong place
I imagine you would be happy to know
I am back in the flow
The right place at the right time
After all these years writing senseless rhymes
Getting back home and starting to cry
I realize you were the reason I wanted to die
I just wanted to thank you

    1. Thanks, it’s not as bad as I make it sound. She was my first real love, you know, in my early 20’s not high school. I’m not everyday pining after her. Writing the story of how we met just brought back memories. It’s funny, the same day I quote from of all people Dr. Suess. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”


      1. Yes, I was so happy to read it. Some random person liked a post so I checked out their blog and that was at the top. I was devastated and sometimes think, what if? But I never would have met my wife/ex and now I wouldn’t trade my daughter for anything. *heart emoji* 🙂

        Sorry, It didn’t come through as a clickable link, I know html but?. this was last Sunday. She is 16 and 90’s retro, just got her license and doesn’t know how cool she is. Of course I’m biased but the last paragraph I was trying to convey how she had a strong personality since she first became self aware. Sorry, you don’t have to read it. I tell people I am more excited and happy now than the day she was born. I got home and cried but not because I was sad.
