A Poem Bryan L. Sutton

Where Are You?

When I was a boy I was told that there is someone for everyone
Where are you?

When I was a teenager I heard all the love songs about finding true love
Where are you?

As a young man I looked long and hard for you
Where are you?

As I matured they said be patient and you'll find her
Where are you?

Now I'm older, but not yet old, and I'm still wondering
Where are you?

I'm afraid I'll be lying on my death bed asking
Where were you?

Bryan L. Sutton is a veteran of the US Air Force.  For over 30 years he struggled with the long term effects of a traumatic brain injury, suffered while he was in the military, that made a connection to the creative side of his brain that he previously didn't have and didn't understand. After caring for his parents until their passing he found himself alone.  At the urging of another disabled veteran, Bryan accepted his creative side and quickly found his voice writing of love and longing for love.
