To Those Who Woo'd (1-19-09)

A Poem by PoetryofProvidence

Oh my friend I never saw

in your many cards so written

in all the dances when we were close

to know that you were smitten

as I look into my past

and those who would me woo

with the many letters here

I could not see you


Never once did I respond

to words that showed you care

though because I was afriad

and ne'er my heart to share

I apologize for being blind

to the world did I surrender

and to you for being kind

and kindness did not I render


As often times I think of you

and what life may have brought

Mayhaps if you had spoken true

and not kept in your thoughts

perhaps had you seen mine eyes

and the anguish dwelling there

who always saw the words as lies

my judgement wasn't fair


Now I can see the tenderness

the gently wooing you

and the effort you had strived

to make me see it too

I carry guilt for pains I caused

with scales mine eyes were closed

like water in a fingers grasp

Mine heart in still repose


More than twenty years have passed

I've had no time to think

to consider how you felt

till I could put to ink

the endless refusing of even a few

who deeply showed their care

To you all I apologize

in future amends I swear
