When I heard

2004 poems
When I heard that you drink and smoke,
I just wanted to provoke you to your face
And just say this to myself in my head,
I have chosen a lover so fine,
But I'm not too fond about
You drinking and smoking.
When I heard that you are doing this to your body;
I broke down and cried and asked the Lord why?
I tell myself every day
I don't do these things to my body,
So why should you?
When I heard;
I just burst out into tears
And it has been several years
Since I have heard this from you.
