PLEASE

Love sleeping close beside you
In the morning before dawn
See your head upon the pillow
Your skin so soft and warm. 

I’ve counted every minute
Every moment spent with you
Fearful you might walk away
That you’d leave me sad and blue.

I saw you at the coffee shop
Through the window sitting there
I saw you touch her face …. her lips
Then  stroke her long blonde hair.

Did you meet somewhere by accident
“On line” or in the park?
Was she someone that came on to you?
Did you meet there …. after dark?

Why can’t we talk about it?
Can’t you see that I’m upset?
What about our plans together?
Did you simply just forget?

What went wrong between us?
Are you  bored …. want someone new?
I can change my hair …. my clothes …. my nails
Please …. tell me what to do.

  1. We say, “Eish!” in South Africa when something hurts someone this much. Let him go, is what I would say. But then hanging on has its merits for some. I have seen it done. When do we know we have won? Only when we one day see the Son.
    Best Wishes.
