A Boy I Once Knew

I am writing this blog in response to one a friend of mine wrote, about past, “romantic” mistakes.  I have to say I don’t regret any of my previous relationships, however brief.  Parameters and dynamics change as we grow and it is all just lumped together to make us who we are.  Anyhow…I digress.  I wrote this poem a long time ago and have dredged it up for this blog.


A boy I once knew

Oh, I once knew a boy

Who was filled with such joy

That he made it a pleasure to live.

He’d an intricate mind

And was generous and kind

And he always had loving to give.

His lithe body was straight

And he walked with a gait

Reminiscent of cowboys of yore.

How he lived in his dreams

Where life’s not what it seems

And without him my lifestyle feels poor.

There are days when I miss

His quite decadent kiss

And his body entwining with mine.

I know I shall treasure

Each moment of pleasure

Though sadly they went into decline.

Now I’ll wander through life

Mixed with pleasure and strife,

With a special memory or two

And I’ll give a soft smile

Every once in a while

With a thought to a boy I once knew.
