You old fool 
Dying not knowing
I loved you.
I never told you
Cause I wanted
More from you,
More attention
And tenderness,
More of what
My father
Never told me,
My mother
Never gave me,
More arms
Wrapping me
When I was
Most unlovable.
What I missed
I wanted most, and
What I wanted most,
I could not give.
How unfair to you.
How cold you must
Have thought me.

  1. Richard,

    I really like the rhythm and flow of this poem. You have said so much in so few words. I'm envious!
