Drove to See You

I drove down to see you
stood in your doorway unannounced
you were there with another
I again felt like an outsider
I didn’t belong
after I wrote you at length
many love songs

My poems wrapped in a box
delivered but only to be forgotten
my heart still in shock
you were going away
never to be seen again
until the month of May
when I would fly thousands of miles
just to see that smile

But you called, shared the news;
you married her,
and had a baby on the way, too

That visit in May was not as planned
we were supposed to be walking the streets hand in hand
not with a mutual friend
not meeting your wife, breaking bread

But as you said,
as long as we’re alive
there’s a chance for magic in the air
well, my love, we shall see that magic again
once this heart has been repaired

Thanks, Don. Sometimes my poems are based on experience, sometimes wishful thinking. Just as any artist works.

This is written so expressively, as Do says, Mika. You have a way of writing that is so good.

I kept hoping it was 'general' as I knew how one would be feeling. I'm glad things have improved since then....

Do, this was written about an experience almost 20 years ago. Things have definitely improved since then, thank you. 😃
