Here's another poem. Again, I put the disclaimer on these, that I wrote them long ago, and some are not very complex in their content and/or context.

Also, some were written as jokes. Others were written straight from the heart and represent how I was feeling at the time. I'll let you sort all that out.

Baba Ganoush, OUT!

Please Forgive Me

I am so sorry for all that I have done to you. Can you please forgive me?
You were always the lucky one of the group. Everyone always admired you.
So many times, you were in the perfect position. Nothing could go wrong.
But it did, and I was always there holding the blame. Can you please forgive me?
Your hopes, your dreams, your goals, always within reach. All you had to do was take action.
But I was always the one, who would pull you away. Can you please forgive me?
So many people that cared, were always on your side. Everywhere you went, someone knew your name.
But you left it up to me, and now most are gone. Can you please forgive me?
Your future was wide open. Like piece of clay, which could take any shape.
You put that clay in my hands, and I let you down. Can you please forgive me?
I remember, people would tell you that you had beautiful eyes, as they became lost in them.
Now, clouded with tears, all I can see is the tale of the long life you have endured.
Looking into your eyes, I get lost in the pain and disappointment that I have caused.
If I had one dying wish, it could only be, that this reflection of mine would please forgive me!!!

This poem was written at a time in my life when I felt I had wasted a lot of opportunity (football, school, relationships, etc). There were a lot of decisions that I regretted at the time.

I can still look back, and part of me might wish I had done something a little different. It's hard to have regrets though, when you are happy with where you are in life.
