I Saw You Walking Yesterday

July 11, 2015 - Poetry

I saw you walking yesterday.
Today you are in the newspaper.

many times I wondered at your quietness,
And why you always sat so far off in the corner.
My friends and I had lunch and talked,
While you usually ate apart,
Sometimes we discussed your quiet manner;
Your ways always seemed difficult to understand.

You and I were never really acquainted,
Although you were always just across the street.
And we met each morning and each afternoon,
I never thought we might actually talk,
Or say more than “Hello,” and “good-bye.”
Now I know that when I saw you walking yesterday,

I should have stopped and said something to help,
So that maybe you wouldn’t have killed yourself.
