JUST THERE by Melvin Lee





JUST  THERE


Where you were,
I did not see you.

So close to me,

but yet so veiled.

Quietly you waited,

upon my invitations;

but still, somehow,
I failed to note

of you, yearning

to be with me,
but finding
just

a void.


So sadly,

you retreated;
bowed, dejected.

Finally when I knew

of you, your devotion,
so foolishly I did feel,
like a simpleton.

For I had looked

so very hard for you,
up/down/everywhere.

but I just did not looked

clear, in front of me,

where you were

. . . just there.
