My Last Poem

Stuart Watkins

This is the last poem

I’ll ever write you

and I am glad

words have been arranged



and randomly presented

the gist always the same

I love you

but your distance has remained

friendship contained

response restrained yet

I still love you

no matter where winds

fate and time find me

thoughts of you will remain

be with me

for you see

I love you

meant it with my first poem

this is the last one

you probably won’t believe

this one either
