Something Is Wrong (poem)

Updated on October 5, 2016

About now is the time for me to walk

Forget the reason it left long ago

All doubt about whose fault is vaguely clear

Regret will be the prize won here today


She could have kept in mind the other times

Brush off her day once more and think of us

We would not fight if she learned how I try

Hush oft resounds her answer to this blight


Were I a man to better rule my tongue

Selecting words more wisely could be fun

Whereby a hug or kiss might be a start

Reflecting on the one that matters here


Where could I find another such as you

Withstood life’s ripples just to stay with me

      A poignant piece reminding us that we should never forget to say sorry when it comes to love.

      Quarrelling achieves nothing, while talking things over and even agreeing to differ and respect each other's thought can reap great rewards. Good poem.
