I Shouted To Her Repeatedly - Visitor's Lost Love Poem
by Francis X. Reilly (Corky Pflegmhocker)
(Williamsport, PA, U.S.A.)
I hadn't seen her in years-
so when I thought I spotted her
on a crowded city sidewalk
that cold Christmas eve afternoon,
I shouted to her repeatedly:
"Was it you... was it you?"
as she quickly disappeared
into the large crowd of Christmas shoppers.
And then I screamed:
"DEAR MERCIFUL GOD! WAS IT YOU?"
