The One That Got Away

One picture has brought a 
million old buried feels back to 
life. Wow, the time hasn't been 
my friend. Your always on my 
mind! I'm sad for our lack of 
time together you were my 
forever and always, the one I 
named baby. I miss you under 
my arm. I wish I had the 
courage to just call or text. My 
phone somehow lost your 
contact over these miserable 
three years. What am I 
suppose to do? I would give 
anything to hold you close. I 
miss your love, I'll forever be 
yours, but I'm just not that 
person for you. There's a long 
cold road ahead of me

    Poignant write Richard! You've brought out the theme very well. I like the wisdom in the poem - that sometimes the one is not the one and it's best to separate. Well penned.
