Again elegy

Photo by Hernan Piñera

When I see you again…

Will I see you again?

I wonder how we will meet?

Will you be waiting for me, take my hand and comfort me?

Will I mourn what is lost, or rejoice at seeing you again?

Will it be awkward, or have you been keeping tabs on my life?

When I see you again…

Will we be the same or will we have grown apart?

When I see you again…

Do I have to tell you or do you already know,

About the days, nights and moments I’ve thought of you?

Do you already know of and forgive me for my regrets,

Or shall I speak to them and ask?

When I see you again…

Can we just sit quietly for a time?

I think I need a moment just to be with you,

Just a moment to see you, touch you, hug you.

A lot of questions,

I know,

But please, just one more.

When I see you again…

Will it be forever?

I am so glad you are here. Please make yourself at home, here, next to the arm-chair. Let us talk of poetry and life; let us laugh and crack jokes; let us rule the world with our lofty thoughts and electrodes for those out of line.Most likely I will pee a little when we laugh, and my thoughts are usually random rather than lofty, but you know what they say: “The dog of the exceptional wisdom has the bird of sleeping monkeys in his dreams!”Anyway, I was talking to a guy the other day who was high on pot (he was standing on the toilet) and I mentioned my fear of bush hogs and roaches. He comforted me and then asked why I was in the stall with him.So there you go, my full life story nowhere on this page. I feel like we know each other so much better now. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I seriously funny, sometimes I’m seriously gassy. I am at all times grateful for your support.If you have an idea to share, or just want to drop a line, you can contact me at peanuttyoh@yahoo.comBe excellent to each other and glitter on glitterbombs.

“Again”is a very beautiful poem. When two loving hearts meet, there will be many questions to ask and many
doubts to clear . Well written.

So many questions wanting to be answered. There may not be an again. Easy and fun to follow along with but I felt a sorrow there too
