Stranger In My Eyes

I don’t know you, you are a stranger in my eyes.
Any thread of hope we had for getting to know each other,
Disappeared when you did.
I suppose I could try to understand why you left,
But then I suppose it really shouldn’t matter to me anyway.
All I know of you is what I’ve been told.
All I’ve seen of you are in the few pictures we still have.
The last I heard of you someone said you had a 10 year old son.

I suppose I should know you since we share some of the same blood,
But I don’t know you, you are a stranger in my eyes.
Any hope of you being a part of my life
Disappeared when you did.
Was there something wrong with me that made you leave?
Was a half sister not good enough for you?
Do you like being a stranger in my eyes?

    Smile ~ Well, this seems to be a very somewhat searching verse; wherein it hinges perhaps upon, a desire to close a door to a past and yet, standing amid the threshold still, with possibly, a slight hope within a deepened heart still echoing the beauties of true love!? Smile, my humbled thoughts dear...."Much Love & Warmth to You Always," John!:) ~ "Excellent Reflections Amid Expressions Write!!" ~
