Rookie (Middlesex England)

Starry skies and tear-filled eyes

See them twinkle in the skies
reflecting in my tear-filled eyes
This has been a happy day
yet sadness now comes out to play
With the moon and shining stars
planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars

For with the night and setting sun
comes a time when I am one
alone and left to contemplate
a night alone without a mate
someone to love and someone to hold
Does this mean I am getting old?

Soon the sun will rise on high
the stars no longer in the sky
people laughing, children and play
greet me in a bright new day
Bring me reminders of a life once led
and I am grateful for the day ahead

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
