Days come and go, they slip away

To morph into some yesterday

Where yesterdays forgotten lie

Reminding all of past goodbye.

Too sad that we cannot replace

Those memories of last embrace

As o’er the years of each regret

Somehow the pain we can’t forget.

Our vision dims, the picture fades

And we are here left with charades

That echo pain and misery

Of loving days that used to be !

The candle burns, its flame is bright

Lord help us to survive the night

It is no matter what we know

Or where it is that we shall go

Perhaps we’ll never meet again

Or share once more remember when !

The early morning fog begins to clear

I hear each leaf’s staccato on the ear

The wind whips through the clutter at the curb

While seeming to declare, do not disturb

The hollowed silence  of forgotten days

Now echoes through this empty canyoned maze !

 

INTO THE AIR ( 2016 ) 2016/12/19

When I was young I fell in love

What was it I was thinking of

New fallen snow and frosty air

What did I see that wasn’t there ?

 

I was in love with winter’s spell

Cozy firesides if truth can tell

And as it happened I was lost

In passion strong that took its course.

 

I really thought our dreams came true

That you and I shared the same view

The winter once more brought the snow

Those fields of white began to grow.

 

But snow like life does fade away

To make room for another day

So like that snowman shrinking there

Some love just melts into the air !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A WASTE OF TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/10/27

When I was young and just a lass

I found a lovely bead of glass

Its color was the purest gold

The shape was bevelled and quite old.

 

I’d often thought from whence it came

And did its owner have a name

How foolish now as I recall

It hid amongst the leaves that fall.

 

But such a girl I was back then

I thought about it not again

For beads of glass without a home

Are objects of  forgotten tome.

 

We cannot find the rest of it

And only have the smallest bit

‘Twould be a waste of time and care

To seek whatever once was there !

There are those thoughts that slip away

Into the realm of yesterday

Deep hidden midst one’s memory

Like moments caught in reverie

At times drawn from the saddened past

To seek those dreams that did not last !

Why can’t I remember or recall

All those precious times when I was small

When I sat upon my daddy’s knee

As he held me tight and talked to me ?

These memories are melting away

Just like my life, drip by drip each day

Oh what I’d give to capture it all

Sweet memories from when I was small !
