I Don't. by LaWanda Felton

I Don't.

I don't wonder if you miss me

because somehow I know you do.

Regardless of what you tell everybody else

I know what we had was true.

I don't have any regrets

because I am convinced

that every moment we spent

was heaven sent.


I don't wonder if you think of me

as much as I think of you

because there's no denying a connection

as strong as the one

between me and you.

I don't wonder if you dream of me

because I know you do.

In my dreams

you try desperately to get next to me.....

but I play coy with you in dreams too!


I don't wonder why your actions

never backed your words.

I don't wonder because I know

you really wish you could;

but you can't;

swallow your pride.

And that's why.....

I don't.

Great poem, I think we all have one of those in our past. I hope this one is in yours because although "you don't" you also "can't wait"....

On the contrary....the speaker in this poem has been forced to wait while the subject of the speaker's dream is contemplating their relationship. The subject of the speaker's dream is being forced to wait on the speaker at the end of the poem. All is fair in love and war!
