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 ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE FOOLISHNESS OF MEN ( 2017 ) 2017/03/13

I try so hard to comprehend

Why all our dreams are at their end

Or why our future is unclear,

The minds of most too full of fear ?

I thought we’d learned how to behave

To play the hero not the knave,

Accept the truth with open heart

And to define its nobler part.

We look into the mirror blind

What type of image will one find

Does no one see themselves for real

How can this nation ever heal ?

Oh Lord, dear Lord, what have we done

What madness is this we’ve begun ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE MAGIC’S GONE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/12

Do you wonder what the morrow brings

Besides the tunes that each songbird sings

What would it be like without that song

Perhaps a place one shouldn’t belong ?

Some pleasant words or a  grateful chat

We’d speak about either this or that

And turn away with a smile or two

While friendship’s  shared between me and you.

Oh how I yearn for the days long gone

When friends were those you might count upon

Life used to be full of many dreams

But the magic’s gone or so it seems !

And so it is that what we seek

To calm the poor, the mild, the meek

Are promises we all must keep

Before we to great futures leap !

Seems all that is left of the life I once knew

Are old photographs and a mem’ry or two !

I may wander in the twilight until my life is o’er

And wonder if I understand what hope is really for ?

 

DREAMS UNDONE ( 2016 ) 2016/10/11

The fall just seems to crisp one up

Like cocoa in a steaming cup

The air is brisk the odor sweet

I felt my heart, it skipped a beat.

The years are ending far too soon

My fondest wishes sadly hewn

And left to nought piled in a heap

While dreams undone have gone to sleep !
