i wanted to

at one time, there were so

many things i wanted to ask you,

so many things i wanted to know.

but since we have parted ways,

and the time continues

to pass with each day,

i realize i don’t know you now,

and i really didn’t even

know you then.

i also realize that with each passing moon,

and each morning’s dawn,

there was so much

importance put upon

unimportant things.

as the distance between us

continues to grow,

comes the ability to see

things more objectively.

with a clarity that must surely

be a grace from the Lord,

i understand that

not everything

i wanted was what

God wanted for me,

and i understand that

so much of me,

you took for granted,

wasn’t even

your’s for the taking.
