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

    some people never change, while others continue to grow, and nothing we can do about it

  2. People only change when they first recognize that they need to change. WE may recognize it, but that doesn’t promote the change.

  3. A beautifully expressed poem of questioning some of the fundamentals of being human, those being growth and change. Excellent work my friend!

    Introspection only happens to those open minded enough to seek it. I believe you told me that. Well written, my friend. ❤

  5. I have so poetically expressed an insight many of us can relate to.

    Beautifully written and so true. Love can be blind especially at first but then we may see things we don’t like so we try to change the person or hope they will change. Change takes enormous work and lots of love and commitment. Great writing as always Brad. Hugs, Jonikins
