I will remember you

I did not
come by and visit
and bring you
the brownies and ice cream
you asked for

you waited
for weeks
and months

I planned to visit
as I had always done
but being busy
got in the way

I don’t know how long
it was before
I got the phone call
you were gone

too often
these days
I think of
getting together
and laughing
and telling tales
like we did

the brownies
and ice cream
I planned to bring them
never made it

I wonder if
my neglect
caused you to
leave early

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
