“Well, what did you think?”

“Well, what did you think?”


“Well, what did you think?”

I’ve heard people ask,

As if a snide comeback,

Was up to love’s task.


“Reasons, all reasons.”

“We’re not by your side.”

“Our life has its reasons,”

They’d chortle and chide.


“With friends like these friends

I’ve learned to just say,

“I’ll continue along,

Get out of their way.”


“Well, what did you think?”

They won’t hear me ask,

I’m so far behind them,

I walk in their past.
