Always a Rod McKuen Fan

I sing for people I can’t have
people I meet once and will never see again.
It is for me a kind of loving.
A kind of loving, for me.

I make words for people I’ve not met
those who will not turn to follow after me.
It is for me a kind a loving.
A kind of loving, for me.

It is for love that I live all alone.
Because the lovers I imagine
are safer then the ones I’ve known.

I make rhymes for people who won’t hear
some who will not turn their faces to meet mine.
It is for me a kind of loving.
A kind of loving, for me.

  1. Nice poem. When I was about 12 I was given Rod Mckuen’s Listen to the Warm. It was a gift from a lovely woman that was my step-mom at the time. Her marriage with my dad didn’t even last a whole year, but I still have the book.
