Sometimes A Poem

Tales of the old forest faeries

Posted to and by Tales of the old forest faeries

And, one day
I looked back for you
But you weren’t there anymore
A stranger did I see
Looking back at me
And, in that very moment
I did promise
That I would keep looking back for you
As I know
One day
I will
See you again

And sometimes a poem just hits you, knocks your socks off as we used to say. Just as I used to look for you, and somedays now still do.
