Hello Goodbye

Heard me say to him watch your step
Please look before you leap old son
But he was foolish and headstrong
To soon the deed was done

He grew from him to be the me
Everyone knows today
Instead of being quiet
He has much more to say

He failed at love and being a dad
As I look back he drove me mad
He took a way that led to nought
Trouble that is all he brought

Somehow he has redeeming features
Though he has loved the rarest creatures
Would I change him no not I 
He and I the same hello goodbye

    Hello my good friend Owen...------ ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer
