“TRY A LITTLE BIT!” a poem August 20, 2019 (Tuesday, for the two of you!)
She remembers me today, but what about tomorrow?
Can there ever really be – surcease of sorrow?
Maybe, but ONLY – IF-YOU “go with the punches!”
I-dunno! What-d’-ya-think? Have you ever-seen “free lunches?”
Perhaps, it’s just a matter – of acceptance of your “fate,”
And, also, if you’ve got an important appointment, don’t be real late,
‘Cause IF YOU ARE – your special lover might just disappear,
And then all that you’re left with is a memory and a tear,
AND! THOUGHTS OF THE WAY THINGS “MIGHT HAVE BEEN,”
And: Isn’t NOT TRYING kind-of a sin?
IF YOU R E A L L Y WANT SOMETHING, why not least kinda “go for it!?”
At least – TRY A LITTLE! Try – a little bit!
” ‘Why are you tormenting me like this? ‘
‘ Because I love you! ‘
‘Oh, OK! Thanks!’
‘Don’t mention it!’ ”
