Why did it take this long
to discover how much I love you?
All those days and nights are gone now.
 
I could have shared that time with you
more deeply than I did.
Kisses rendered with soul
instead of obligation.
 
Why did not share my fears with you?
Had I gotten to the place
that fear of being a fool
was more important
than sharing my soul with you?
 
I say to you
my friend
remember this
“If love sits next to you each day,
render to that love
praise and appreciation each day.”
 
In so doing
your days will not be filled with regrets
as my days are now filled
with spent sorrow.

It is time to say goodby.
I can see my sadness in your eyes.
Is this the goodby kiss
that will always be in your memory?
 
Press closer to me.
Imprint my soul
with your being.
 
Please do not look
into my eyes.
The sadness will always
be there
until we are one again
in our happiness.

Knowing what I know now is a familiar saying.
With that knowledge and a time machine
where would I go now?
 
It would be the beginning of my life
back to the happiness days of my life
when I was a young soldier.
 
It would have been that day
in Happy, Texas when I first saw you.
The time we exchanged addresses
as the bus pulled out.
 
Knowing what I know now.
would I have lived my life differently?
I do know one thing for sure
the deep sadness I feel now
would not be within my being today.
 
A first love of the heart
is always remembered
never to be forgotten
in the eternal time
before us all.
