There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!

Summer days are drifted away

‘Tis time for fall to have its say

Before the winter storms each door

And new year springs one last encore,

It’s the wee small hours frighten me

When I must face what is to be

I accept there is no recourse

And from this world await divorce !

 

 

THE FUTURE’S DEAD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/09

There was a time we all felt good

The way united people should

We worked together like a pack

I prayed we’d get our mojo back

But all this stress and anger too

Is something that we must pass through

I see no clear path straight ahead

Just seems as though the future’s dead !

I thought that love had come to stay

One knows true love won’t run away

For you and I were born to be

Two partners through eternity.

I’d always dreamt that this was so

No matter what or where we’d go

Though sometimes I did have a doubt

If this is what all love’s about ?

I tried so hard to stay the course

I didn’t care who was the boss

Since you and I had one intent

That for each other we were meant.

Somehow, somewhere it went astray

While all our hopes did melt away

So much for dreams and plans well made

Like future joys that got mislaid.

I often wondered what went wrong

Was I too weak, were you not strong

After the bliss of that first kiss

Why does love fade to hit or miss ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

START AGAIN ( 2015 ) 2015/12/30

The snowflakes fluttered to the ground

And fell in soft peaks all around

The winter winds blew brash and bold

And shimmered in the midnight’s cold

The sting of frost left on my face

Like numbness of our last embrace.

When I was young and dreamt a bit

I thought my dreams could never fit

But now I’m old and understand

Sometimes fate deals a losing hand

And we must make another plan

To manage fear and start again !

 

CHANCES ( 2013 ) 2013/09/23

In this house beside the road along the waters edge

I chose to make my final home vowing this my pledge

How could I know time would show the weakness of my dream

Though we may plan for lifetimes there is another scheme

When nature vows she’ll have her way there’s no chance to win.

The violent gales did blow and sway, trees came crashing in,

That ugly storm had a name that I recall, Eileen

It happened so long ago and now appears obscene.

Since that day I’ve learned one thing I never will forget

You cannot build futures without moments of regret.

 

WASTE ( 2013 ) 2013/09/07

There is so much love and there’s so much hate

It occurs to me that the hour grows late

And the world grows cold in its need of haste

As we ignore how much it’s laying waste

To our hopes, our joys and moderate ways,

With not one thought to the ending of days

We’ll seek answers there in the mystic deep

Because in our dreams even dragons sleep !
