Now I have lived quite a long time

In varied places and other clime

And learned that one must try to fit

Into each spot that’s part of it.

When but a child, the horse and cart

Is how our travel had its start

Next came the Ford all black and square

While in the rear its trunk was there.

Those skinny tires were truly sad

I cannot count the flats we had

Oh for those days that are long gone

Sweet memories my heart dwells on !

The moment that I rise from bed

Old memories do fill my head

I am back home when I was small

And dad is whistling in the hall.

 

Mom’s hanging clothes upon the line

The wind is crisp, the day is fine

The children shreiking in the yard

Makes hearing conversation hard.

 

While Nana’s praying in her room

Pop’s sweeping sidewalks with his broom

The smell of onions fills the air

As dinner waits to be prepared.

 

My world gets smaller day by day

As those I love all pass away

And will to me this legacy

They bide with me in memory !

Seems all that is left of the life I once knew

Are old photographs and a mem’ry or two !

 

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 !

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 !

The air is sweet with salted breath

It rises from the ocean’s depth

The summer storms have blown away

And left us this vacation day

The wind has slipt among the trees

Suggesting life is well at ease.

Some days are perfect, some are not

Some days remembered, some forgot

I hope one day to chance recall

That moment summer morphed to fall !

Oh that yearning for times long past

Those youthful days that did not last

Where all our dreams began as hope

To bear no limits in their scope

For youth is that which knows no fear

Of obstacles both far and near.

Yet all too soon those days must pass

Like shadows in life’s looking glass

While time alone may leave its marks

As former youth on age embarks

There face anew another day

To pack their former life away !
