I Wonder


I wonder if you have changed

If what we went through

Has had the same impact on you


For I know I am not the same

What was once found then lost

Has paid the highest of costs


But I do not bear any regrets

For the growth you have spurred

In your solo world so absurd


Has opened my eyes for sure

Though our love could not be renewed

My perception is now much less skewed


I wonder if you have changed

But from my more distant view

You appear to be the same old you

  1. I think all people change over time. The difference is that some people change because they HAVE to, and some people change because they WANT to. I know I’ve changed a lot over the course of my adulthood, and I see many, many changes in you over the past several years!

    I think we do make personal adjustments/changes if we are willing to be open along the way, and learn, but some are not, and stay who they were and continue to be.

    I agree with your sister that we all change over time, some more than others. But we may not notice when it happens to ourselves.

    Omg! This spoke to me. And it feels like my current life. Thank you for putting the words down that I could not find. I appreciate you so much!

  5. I do not know if you change or not but I sure love your words!

    I think many of us change and grow as we perceive different perspectives and learn more about the world and the people in it. I feel sorry for those who remain the same; it’s as if they’re walking around blindly, thinking there are no areas of improvement.

      Some people think they have life all figured out and are already the best version of themselves. I have found that life is never quite that linear. Much love!

    Change sometimes is just an illusion and the desire to change a mind-game, but you’ve written a lovely poem about such an oneiric event. Cheers Brad,

    We can’t help but wonder about someone from days gone by.
