Until the next time…

a poem by Blaze

I thought I would tell you today
My feelings- all in a line
But when we were face to face
I thought, well, next time.
Days go by and so do weeks
I never made up for the lost time
Gave in to all those fears
By always saying next time.
I gave a bold front out
But feared the world inside
Try as I might all it summed up to
Was a next time
At last I mustered up the courage
And came to you with a smile
But one look at you and the feeling returned
I just couldn’t do it this time.
You were to walk down the aisle
Happy as a lark with your bride
And I was jolted to the present
It was too late for the next time.
