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 !

My dearest boy I miss you so

How sad was I,  you chose to go

Of all those dreams that you did spin

When did your fear of truth begin ?

Your spirits rose with every thought

How could your inner self get caught

With real foresight that you possessed

What was it cost you your success ?

Who was it told you all would fail

And stole the wind from out your sail ?

Regarding all life’s pain and ache

I’ve found my heart close to a break

Select a path which each must choose

And for this once walk in my shoes

The complex part aft all’s been done

Is sadness that does one o’ercome.

However long this life may be

There’s but one judge of thee and me.

Tis true for those who’ve gone away

There is no option leave or stay !

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

 

SUICIDE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/31

We have seen the soldiers marching

And have heard all the cannons roar

In the distance, rockets launching

There in the middle of this war

To find ourselves thus encompassed

In a battle we cannot win

Where the madness is upon us

And the world’s drowning in chagrin !

 

VIRTUOSITY ( 2018 ) 2018/07/28

Oh wayward star where have you been

What kind of world are you lost in

The road is slick, the path is steep

Where is the vision that you seek ?

The night is long and lost in dark

While all about is drear and stark

The mist seeps through the window pane

Engendering a new refrain

Oh Lord, be kind, help us to see

Life’s face of virtuosity !

 

 

OUR FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/22

Here am I wrapt within the tide

Of where all hopes and fears reside

As surging life and death are found

Beneath, above and all around

While time bides with us to the end

And God and angels all befriend !
