The  pages of my  calendar

All now seem to be  flashing by

They  are racing one  another

I  find I’m helpless  as they  fly.

I never thought that I would see

A time that  would  evaporate

This  world with such  rapidity

Without a  chance to  concentrate.

And so  it is  the days  have passed

Without  one moment  to be  lost

Like  pictures  in a  looking  glass

With  no one there to count the cost !

The open window invites the breeze

To sashay in from beneath the trees

Take a dance around a room or two

Sharing fresh air between me and you.

Enjoy the night times secret pleasure

Amidst the joys we all do treasure

Remember how fast the seasons fly

Before we each have to bid goodbye

As the nights grow cool before the dawn

And the years we loved are too soon gone !

 

 

IT’S OVER ( 2019 ) 2019/08/01

There are no bridges left to cross

Nor any mountains left to climb

It’s too late now to pitch and toss

Because we have run out of time.

There is no point in looking back

The curtains drawn, the page is blank

The horse got spooked and left the track

And no one’s  here we need to thank.

We have no reason now to try

I cannot ask the how and when

Believe that love just passed us by

And will not come this way again !

 

SAVE OUR DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/05/24

I  treasure  days just like today

To savor and to store away

Full of the warmth one dreams about

No fantasies chock full of doubt.

But life is never quite so clear

We cannot know when danger’s near

Or when we shall run out of time

And find ourselves deaf, dumb or blind.

The answer is to pull up tight

Tack on a smile, begin to fight

For planning is the proper way

To save each dream, from day to day !

 

 

A SIMPLE GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !

 

FINAL ACCEPTANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/13

Time moves on more slowly now

As every minute counts somehow

We savor all as hours pass

Because we know these are the last.

There is no choice we can make

To hope to end or stop the ache

What is to be, ’twill be so

But until then tis status quo !

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !
