SHE’S NOT THERE…..

th

He was sad on that day

that laid between

his past and present.

 

Each day he searched

with lingering remorse.

The seasons

remained empty

his universe so small.

 

Eden so lonely.

His only escape

was backwards

in his mind…..

But she was not there.

“I wanted to tell her everything, maybe if I’d been able to, we could have lived differently, maybe I’d be there with you now instead of here. Maybe… if I’d said, ‘I’m so afraid of losing something I love that I refuse to love anything,’ maybe that would have made the impossible possible. Maybe, but I couldn’t do it, I had buried too much too deeply inside me. And here I am, instead of there.” …..Jonathan Safran

    Good Morning from The Big Apple Estee! This is a lovely poem. What I would tell this person is we all do things we desperately wish we could undo. Those regrets just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change that, well, it’s like chasing clouds. Most of us have a lot of storms that have gathered. Regards to you my dear. Jack Millans
