Where have the gentle people gone?

Maybe there were not many

but I did meet a few

throughout my life.

I’m thinking of a friend who

would fight me to pay the lunch or

dinner bill.

I am thinking of the gentle couple

who talked with me while

waiting for a dinner tables

then they paid my dinner check

when they left

(I never had a chance to thank them).

I don’t want those who deceive me

to be my friends.

I want the gentle people to

return into my life

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.
