Russell G. Robison

(For Kathy Kuehne)

I didn’t mean to hurt you
With my sight of long ago
But you had made it clear
That it was something you must know

And so I tried to tell you
What still lives inside of me
And in your eyes I saw that
It was something not to be

I understand that look
For I still feel the same way too
But I was in a place
Where there was nothing else to do
