I Didn't Know

Ann Yaggie 1970 (Florida)

I didn't know that you'd be gone
left me to wonder and be all alone.

You walked out in the morning dew
 where you went I have no clue.

If you decide to turn around
from where it was you were bound
I'll be here, not making a sound.

My heart aches for the love and the loss
I didn't know that you would cross.

    This was a few lines that came to my mind and truly has nothing to do with me, or my life situation. It's amazes me how these words come together to make poetry.
