searching for the perfect person

I have spent
most of my life
walking unfamiliar streets

once in awhile
a friendly wanderer
crosses my path

we celebrate finding each other
and for a brief time
I become aware
of what love can do
to my hopes
to my days
and to my life

then it ends
I never know if it’s my fault
or the other getting restless
for someone else

but I never
throw away
my walking stick

there will always
be another

Note to reader:
This is from the back cover of my book
“Be Gentle With Your Goodbye”

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.
