Once I Was There

once i was there,
now i am not,
like a shadow in the window,
an unanswered knock;

once i was beautiful,
now i am plain,
like a flower gone to wilt,
a canvas less paint;

once i was bold,
i was young and daft
but strong and quick,
as the strike of an asp;

once i was there,
now i am not.

    So where are you dear? Joking…
    Your poetry is beautiful.
