The poem I am writing for Tammy for our 25th anniversary is not completed as of yet. I guess I have what is called writers block. So until I have it ready I am posting the poem “Changes” I wrote this poem when Tammy and I were going through some tough times like all married couples have. This poem is published in the book (The Colors of Life) on page 3. I hope you enjoy the poem and please feel free to comment on it.
I know that people change in many different ways. And I know the changes never happen in a day.
Most people make changes over a long period of time and the changes they make never have any rhythm or rhyme.
Through out the years we’ve have changes a lot. Some of the changes were for the good but most of them were not.
The reason we make changes I do not fully understand but the consequences of them are now in our hands.
Most changes are small and do not seem like there much but when you put them all together they can kill even love.
Can people change back once it too late or is all their love just gone to waste.
Maybe it’s not all for waste if people are willing to make small positive changes along the way.
I have made mistakes and you have made some to. I have taken you for granted, as so have you.
I sit here and wonder was it even love at all or was I just here to break your fall.
I’m willing to make changes if you can make a few too so our many years of love can forever stay true.
That’s why I named this poem “Changes” and this one I have written just for you.
The poem was written on July 21st 2003 for my “Brown Eyed Girl” Tammy
