If you follow my site, you may know that I have a friend from Lisbon, Portugal, named Carla Milho. She’s a wonderful writer and often a source of inspiration, including this recent poem of mine…
Before I Go
She doesn’t like when I say it,
But knows damn well it’s true.
I love her with my heart and soul,
So what am I to do?
Ok we’re friends let’s keep it cool,
I understand your choice.
I’d like to kiss but we can talk,
– So says my inner voice.
I know that she may never change,
But know I love her so.
So beautiful this chance I’ll take,
And wait – before I go.
