I Didn't Know How To Hold Her

Updated on March 22, 2013


We were a perfect match.

She fit perfectly in my shoulder.

Her heart fit in mine.

I wish I would have told her.


Another rude awakening?

Did I need to discover?

I didn’t meet her needs.

I didn’t know how to love her.


Seldom is the second chance.

Should I have been bolder?

She was the center piece to this puzzle.

But I didn’t know how to hold her.


There is no love,

Like the love that lingers,

When that perfect love,

Slips through the fingers.


Perhaps I’m not wise enough,

I didn’t know how to kiss her.

I ponder what could have been.

I’m at a loss at how to miss her.


Time waits for no man.

The calendar flies apart.

And purgatory awaits,

The pure and soft of heart.


It’s harmfully stunning,

To feel love suddenly colder.

And wake to realize,

I didn’t know how to hold her.

      Awwwwww, Micky, this poem really shows a softer side of you. It reminds me of this song by Bruno Mars, "When I was Your Man". Its sad when we know all the things we should have done when we had the chance.
