I Didn't Know How To Hold Her

Updated on March 22, 2013

I DIDN’T KNOW HOW…

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.
