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.
