week 421~ while I was thinking about this

leave a comment »

me-421awhile I was thinking about this
all was perfect in every way
it seemed my dreams could never miss
time passed plans fell to disarray

all was perfect in every way
cradled by imagination
time passed plans fell to disarray
life blinked then they were left undone

cradled by imagination
it seemed my dreams could never miss
life blinked then they were left undone
while I was thinking about this

while I was thinking about this
it was perfect in every way
it seemed my dreams could never miss
time passed plans fell to disarray

 it was perfect in every way
cradled by imagination
time passed plans fell to disarray
life blinked and all were left undone

 cradled by imagination
it seemed my dreams could never miss
life blinked and all were left undone
while I was thinking about this

week 370 ~ take the time to remember

with 4 comments

me.370take the time to remember
then pack those photos away
the sadness shouldn’t linger
they’re not part of you today

then pack those photos away
acknowledging what they took
they’re not part of you today
but they are who you were look

acknowledging what they took
the path you have traveled gone
but they are who you were look
try not to regret what’s drawn

the path you have traveled gone
but time has returned with grace
try not to regret what’s drawn
that’s important don’t erase

but time has returned with grace
the sadness shouldn’t linger
that’s important don’t erase
take the time to remember

week 351 ~ I am all tied up in knots

with 2 comments

me.351I am all tied up in knots
my back hurts my neck aches too
match up do-haves with the not’s
trying hard to barge on through

my back hurts my neck aches too
still the list goes on and on
trying hard to barge on through
before all the good time’s gone

still the list goes on and on
I’m so ready to be done
before all the good time’s gone
while there’s still a chance for fun

I’m so ready to be done
though it’s never just easy
while there’s still a chance for fun
time insists on teasing me

though it’s never just easy
match the do-haves with the not’s
time insists on teasing me
I am all tied up in knots

week 347 ~ piled high in dark corners

with 2 comments

me.348piled high in dark corners
stacks of daydreams molder
so much to do need blurs
intention life’s colder

stacks of daydreams molder
incomprehensible
intention life’s colder
when time seems always full

incomprehensible
nightmares confound my sleep
when time seems always full
with promises to keep

nightmares confound my sleep
distractions intervene
with promises to keep
quandaries appear obscene

distractions intervene
it hurts that I can’t stay
quandaries appear obscene
plans for another day

it hurts that I can’t stay
so much to do need blurs
plans for another day
piled high in dark corners

week 343 ~ if we could always be laughing

with 2 comments

me.342if we could always be laughing
this moment when we resemble
the gods would not be time passing
joy wouldn’t need to dissemble

this moment when we resemble
the sunset over the water
joy wouldn’t need to dissemble
we’d be fortune’s son and daughter

 the sunset over the water
beckons us on swimming like fish
we’d be fortune’s son and daughter
at the horizon all we wish

 beckons us on swimming like fish
through these enchanted flowing streams
at the horizon all we wish
this time we’d salvage ship-wrecked dreams

through these enchanted flowing streams
the gods would not be time passing
this time we’d salvage ship-wrecked dreams
If we could always be laughing

week 337 ~ no miracle awaits here

with 2 comments

me.337no miracle awaits here
nor will fervent dreams come true
now exactly as we fear
there is nothing we can do

 nor will fervent dreams come true
much as we would wish it so
there is nothing we can do
there’s just reasons why to know

much as we would wish it so
we can’t step in front of fate
there’s just reasons why to know
would have should have running late

we can’t step in front of fate
now exactly as we fear
would have should have running late
no miracle awaits here
