This poem is titled IDLY BY. It is one of the themes of the novel APRIL RAiN. All words are written and property of AM GROUT. (excuse the layout for this website only offers one kind for these entries.)
Time has not passed long here.
I've waited to feed your soul.
But peace came with a price.
I didn't plan to sit idly by.
He did not do what he did to me, to you.
But what he did to you was try to protect you.
That was wrong and now you hear me.
A little too late for me, but not for you.
I only tried to do what was right.
But death came in the dark of the night.
I felt the blame, you gave him a name.
Your heart feels more pain than us.
We want you to heal.
Even if we are wrong.
It might set something wrong.
Life deservers so much more than feeling the rain.
