    i was walking around,
    doing the things i do.
    then it just so happened,
    that i bumped into you.
    you said how are you doing,
    without you--oh so bad.
    but i answered great,
    not knowing that i had.
    you looked me in the eye and said,
    are you okay?
    only if you would hug me,
    was what i wanted to say.
    but instead i replied,
    yeah--i'm holding on.
    you said that's good
    while i wondered for how long
    then you said
    i'll see you and waved good-bye,
    i love you too i whispered,
    as i turned around to cry............. :crying:

    Do our pride sometimes make us lose the very one we love? if :flamet: gets in the way whenever the two meet...then maybe you should stop wasteing precious time...always remember this: "HERE TODAY...GONE TOMORROW"
    ...and 'woulda, coulda, shoulda won't help then.
    very nice piece...keep it coming

    Emotions can be confusing, especially when we're not honest about our feelings. Not like we own a crystal ball or something. Feelin this flow.

    indeed we all learn as we grow it's a teaching and a learning
    motions of feeling can be this way when we not sure or true to
    it all but it all works out
