I wanted so many times to stop
At her house and be company to her
But I was fearful.
Scared she wouldn't know me
And would be afraid of me.
I'd see her standing on the porch
And would wave.
She'd wave back
Not really recognizing a neighbor.
I regret my silly fear now 
She left her place one day walking
And no one  has seen her since.

    Yes! This brings back memories. I'm still wondering about that girl I was going to ask to lunch, that blond girl who worked at the doctor's office. Congrats on the selection. daver

    Sad story. Sometimes the things we didn't do are more difficult memories than the thins we did. Thanks for this one. I'm going to visit my aunt. I've made excuses for years. Vince
