At times I find myself uptight

Caught in a terror of the night

I cannot rest or close my eyes

Recapturing sweet sleep’s reprise.

The angels have deserted me

My world is wrapt in apathy

There is no answer to be found

Help me to turn the mood around !

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !

Does man get lost in hopes that are not fair

While ever wanting to seek paradise,

As trees lift up their arms to God in prayer

Are men then left alone to their device ?

Life has a vast divide existing there

To reach in darkness feeling no alarm

For man’s oft judged by trappings he may wear

And so has learnt how to evade this harm ?

But still in God’s lost idyllic garden

Where fragrant roses will forever bloom

Lie shadows of those soon forgotten

Not unlike whispers in a silent room !

 

 

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 !

There is a road that leads somewhere

But I don’t know if I’ll get there

Its pathway is so long and bleak

Yet will it hold the aim I seek ?

I cannot find a moment’s rest

Seems life is just one endless quest

As on and on this weary trail

I struggle but to no avail !

 

 

 

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 !
