Four Days

Four Days

A Poem by Scott W. Martin

I wrote this a long time ago for nobody at all.



I decided to write you a poem one day
So I sat down to think of all the things I could say
‘How Hard could it be?’ I asked the gods above
To write a simple little poem, for my one true love


The words did not come easily as I thought they would
In fact they didn’t come at all
I swore that before this first day turned into two
I would find the words to express my love for you


Well that first day did turn into two
And still I had not the fondest clue
Of which of many words I was going to use
To describe the great beauty that is you


That second day became day three
And still I couldn’t find the words to describe one such as thee


That third day became day four
And I told myself that I would think of this poem no more
And so I put down my pad and pen
And thought that maybe later I could try again
And that maybe I could write about all the things that have happened
From now till then


But you see, even though I did not write a single line
These four days spent with you on my mind
Was truly not a waste of my good time

For you are more wonderful than words can say
And well worth the efforts of a poem unwritten for over four days

This has a great meter to it and it's quite sweet. Too bad it was for "nobody at all" I think it would have been a hit :)

A pleasure to read, Scott.
