This poem I wrote, probably in the summer of 1978, with no surviving written record came pouring onto my head as I woke up a few mornings ago. I’m not sure why I came back into my head, and I’m not sure how complete this is, but I feel the need to put it down. In the 8th grade, I still felt the need to rhyme.
I never knew I loved you I never knew I cared Until the day I reminisced About the things that we once shared. I never knew the sweetness Or the smile on your face until you were gone away and out of my embrace I know now that I want you back Right here by my side Until the end of the earth Until the day I die
