I don’t know how (poem © 2017)


There have been many, many times,
That I wanted to say no;
But I don’t know how.

There are many, many people,
To whom I should say sorry;
But I don’t know how.

There are those, far too many,
To whom I should say thank you;
I don’t know how.

There are those, very few,
To whom I should say I love you;
But I don’t know how.

I don’t know how; to say no.
I don’t know how; to say I am sorry.
I don’t know how, to say thank you.
I don’t know how; to say I love you.
I don’t know how to live or to forgive.
I don’t know how.
