The Computer Ate My Poem

it's 7 AM, 
I've been up all night
sorting my thoughts
for my soupmates

and I came up
with a lengthy poem
which I thought 
expressed my sense
of loss, on the 
death of my dear father...

turned to be a long
narrative ballad
(or Whatever!!!)
and it took me 
quite a while...

well, just before
I was to go to part 2
it disappeared
before my sight...

did I depress a wrong
tab, in my rush
to get to bed???

all I know, is that,
somehow, my poem 
is now well dead..

so my friends,
be careful....
cause you never know...
what poems
your computer...
had rather eat than show.
