Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

There are times when I think of the past

And all of my dreams that failed to  last

I recall quite well what used to be

When life held moments of ecstasy

And a precious love faithful and true

Along with that which was called virtue,

And I ask of myself what comes next

There’s no hope left for some grand pretext !



GLORY DAYS ( 2015 ) 2015/12/27

When men were giants in  the land

And custom held one kissed the hand

The dragon was the primal fear

And jousts were fought both far and near.

These were the times when men were brave

And sped their steeds to maidens save

The simple facts were brought to mind

And courage was not hard to find.

But now this is a newer age

And life has found a diff’rent stage

As truth is hid behind each door

The glory waned and is no more !


ONE LAST DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/09/24

I wish I were an hour glass

That holds the precious sand of time

Then I’d control the way days pass

And that would be my wish sublime !

I’d find a way to slow the sand

So time cannot just slip away

And it will seem alright and grand

For us to share this one last day !


SADNESS ( 2013 ) 2013/10/13

The shades of night fall oh, so silently

Upon the dimmed remainder of each day

The telltale shadows here reminding me

Of another time and another way.

There was a place so far and long ago

Perhaps one might believe it never was

I lost my heart I prayed it did not show

Sadness follows loss, it quite often does.

This heart of mine that never fret a fear

May chance survive intact with small success

So full it cannot hold another tear

Or find a love it can at last possess.


JUDGEMENT ( 2013 ) 2013/04/23

The swiftly graying darkly coursing sky

Does play upon my fickle inner eye

And bares a mystery both stark and bold

That speaks to me of long lost dreams untold.

These dreams I thought had flown so far away.

Yet seeming near, had somehow lost their way.


Some fringed and faded shadows left behind

Shedding aged reflection as they unwind

What had once been I recognised anew

And purpose wrought with aim and course so true.

The passion in my heart that won’t decline

A hungry yearning that I can’t define

The dreaming in my mind that cannot fade

A hard decision that I have not made

The longing in my soul that will not wane

A quest for meaning that I’ve failed to gain.


And there among the past that wastes away

Find sad remains of yet another day

One unknown force that placed the founding stone

Has willed this legacy to us alone.

There in the night with truth possessed and sown

Who by their fruits at last shall they be known.
