    A poet I know
    Her heart so dear to me
    Sparked this thought

    I say.

    Maybe I should be glad
    I wasn’t chosen

    I wonder how things
    Would have unfolded

    Turned out into
    What will be called my past?

    When I was with you
    It was heaven

    When I lost you

    And I do miss you

    You tore away from me
    Without a care

    I thought why?
    Then I start thinking

    That was callous what you did
    You didn’t care

    Not seem to care
    My heart was torn

    Yet I miss you!
    I really shouldn’t
    That is life

    A love gone and scorned.

    Thinking that it was probably for the best, but still wondering...what if. Some things we may never know the whole of, so of course we mull it over from time to time. I think most will feel where your coming from brother poet.

    Thank You Sister watz
    You sparked the thought in a comment you made in a flow I read.
    You are inspirational.

    Then I thought about the women I didn't chose in life.

    How would it have been.

    sometimes in solitude we find the greatest of loves

    reminds me of a song...

    sometimes what could've been
    is better then
    what could never be at all...

    nice nice flow Br. Hodee....

    sometimes bein not chosen means u are exactly that....

    peace poet

    Oh, if "IF" was a Fif' many of our lives would be so very different! Maybe for the better, maybe for worse. But, we got what we got and we're workin' with it as best we can.

    And, whatever "IT" is, it sure has been one bad mamma-jamma to many people! You took me down my own road and I looked back for a moment too.

    Again, I don't know how I miss this one, but I'm glad that I found it. Life is so funny like that, because we truly never know, there's just no way to.However a part of me definitely feels that whatever happens and whoever we choose, is what is supposed to be for that time. Sometimes the most beautiful of things comes from what we may now think should have never happen, but look again, at the beauty and get a better understanding, of why me, why them, why now, and say bless! As I say to you poet Bless!
