Been A While

Been A While

A Poem by Green



It wasn’t until 

I saw your reaction

that I realized

you’d never heard me laugh

It had been that long

and I had almost forgotten

who I was

How then

could you have ever known

These moments of clarity are like sunlight filtering through to warm us on a cloudy day.
This is how love is grown; a little humility and understanding held out from the hand giving a benefit of the doubt.

Lovely write.

It is good to laugh. Laughter allowed to release joy and happiness. I enjoyed the poetry. It is sad when we forget to laugh. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

I'm living in the good ol' south of the US of A. Professionally, I'm an engineer and I guess that means I'm supposed to know things. I don't always. I write because I can, and because I can write word.. more..
