Best Lola Barron Poems

+ Fav Poet


I didn't know you'd gone away
I heard it from another,
They said you went because of me
I didn't mean to smother.

I knew your spirit should be free
But couldn't let you go,
I needed you to be with me
I'm sorry. Did you know.

They said you travelled here and there
But never really found
The things that you were looking for
But I was still around.

They said that you were coming back
To always be with me,
But something happened on the way
That no-one could foresee.

If only I had persevered
And you'd not gone away,
You never would have found yourself
But you'd still be here today.
