Best Richard Lamoureux Poems

You didn't listen to what she had to say
Now you understand why she went away
In your heart you long to have her back
It's not too late you will see that day

You did not recognize that you had a gift
It was sadness that caused your mind to shift
Call out and ask for her forgiveness
It will give both of your spirits a lift

She is longing to feel your warm embrace
You will see joy written on her face
She wants to be your priority
Now she knows this really is the case

Trying out a new form

    I am back (my studies had kept me busy). :-)... I have been reading your poetry this morning (CT time) and I feel a peace in my inner being. Your poetry is very inspirational, Richard. I would like to use the opening couplet to this poem in the "Who is the Poet? 3" - please the two blogs relating to this. Thanks. Love, Su
