Dismissed To Be Missed Yet Dismissing The Missing

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those who do bring gifts to others,
With the material and the physicalness of this...
To the receiver who gets to go unseen.
And the frequency of the gifts one accepts,
Eventually is regretted when the giver is neglected.
Feeling rejected the giver reflects.
And with a doing refreshes by taking forward steps.

The giver is believed not to be the one who delivers.
And the giver leaves.
The gifts stop.
And dismissed to be missed mysteriously,
Is the giver by the others with their druthers perceived...
That those gifts they once received were not delivered,
By the giver. The giver not regretting a decision to leave.

So the giver goes knowing what true love should bestow.
And dismissing the missing as just one more experience,
To forget to get over until someone recognizes,
This 'gem' to pick up, dust and buff.
And familiar with the glimmer of the gifts one brings...
With a showing of respect.
Sharing and devoted as an offering both receive and get.
