RETROSPECT ( 2019 ) 2019/05/13

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 !

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 !



WE SHALL DROWN ( 2016 ) 2016/06/07

Our lives have wandered far afield

And cannot know what time will yield

We beg that God will understand

And lend to us His helping hand.

The world is done and stranger still

Few people care, some never will

We wend our way among the maze

Of trying and forgotten days.

This generation, it is lost

There is no way to count the cost

All heaven’s tears are raining down

Oh save us Lord, lest we should drown !

How fleet and swift our lives pass by

With minutes lost, the hours fly

There is no time called used to be

What we once knew did rapid flee

And left us there in life’s abyss

Our hopes awash, our love unkissed !

Where is the dream of yesterday

Where has it gone it’s flown away,

It wasted by the road’s dead end

And lingered there without a friend.

The flowers withered on the vine

The fruit has shriveled in the clime

The world just seems so out of sorts

Our ships are moored in foreign ports

Hard work is there that none will share

I think there’s no one left to care !

The days go by they’re all the same

Though calendars do change their name

It’s like a dream one can’t forget

But seems it’s had no ending yet

This simple wish that knows no past

Too soon becomes its very last !


FORGOTTEN ( 2014 ) ( ALZHEIMERS ) 2014/03/11

There in the past, the story grows

It lives the lie that sorrow knows

And carries on it’s tattered wings

The futile hope that dreaming brings.

Where did the thoughts of yesterday

Get left behind or go astray ?

How did we lose our earthly core

Or fail to reach for sky once more ?

It seems to me, we cannot know

How far and deep that loss will go

I need you Lord, to purge my soul

And help me please, maintain my goal !


PAST IMAGES ( 2014 ) 2014/02/06

There dimly through the window seen

Vast veils of snow upon the green

Old visions of once long ago

Gave credence to the falling snow.

Seems time has lost its human face

That haunted every special place

And greets us all in manner same

Small difference in stance or name.

Snow laden folk in iced disguise

With runny nose and sparkling eyes

Were there to greet us as we passed

Lost images in looking glass.

I’m sad those days have flown away

This world is cold and dark and gray !

I am a fish and wish to abide

Close by the sea and edge of the tide

But  the fish in me is never sure

If my atmosphere is foul or pure

And swims about with no aim in sight

As I float to make it through each night.
