Intruders

  • They intrude,
    • Sometimes pushing urgently,
    • Sometimes insidiously,
    • Other times gently calling, beckoning.
    • Yes, they take over.
  • Thoughts of you.
    • Are you mad at me?
    • What are you thinking?
    • What are you doing?
    • Yes, they take over.
  • Thoughts of you.
    • When you are near or far.
    • At work or at home,
    • Even at play.
    • Yes, they take over.
  • Thoughts of you.
    • Lovingly or angrily.
    • Thoughtful or in jest.
    • Even playfully.
    • Yes, they take over.
  • They intrude!

  • I wrote this poem when on a business trip.  It was noticeable how thoughts of my wife came to my mind.  They definitely intruded when I was in meetings, after the meetings, in the evening or as I was waking up in the morning.
