I Never Thought to Ask

Preoccupied with the task at hand
And troubles circled 'round
I ignored the chance to ask the one
Whose opinions would have weighed

What to say about the text
What critical thoughts there were
To give to eager minds that asked
To know what I don't know

Maybe it was just the shock
Of seeing her that day
When odds were long
That meetings couldn't form

Maybe it was just insistent
Flapping from the demons 'round
That kept me from salvation
When it met me underground

And so I muddled through again
Chanced this way and that
Bulling through another china shop
Without a guiding hand

Maybe they were sterner stuff
To survive the passage past
Strange when your greatest hope
Is to do no harm that lasts
