The Way We Were

Being aware
The way we were
Not mine to share
Past blinding glare
The way we were
Not mine to share
*Barbara stole my line
Memory's empty wine
Last breath from my glass
Funeral farewell mass
I alone lament my past
My play, my act, my cast
Memories bells ringing
Echoes of what if living
Last lover footprints behind
Anchors my heart's mind
Milton souls epic lament
Sorrow's last dent!
Why can't love forever last
Nature Sun blast
Spring eyes, summer mouth, and autumn fading smells
Life evolving casting spells
Winter hues echoing blues
Answers to questions forming my cues
I settle for one in four
Reliable repeats wring my core
I have know many regrets
Life journey pay back earned debts
I have know rejects
Subject to its effect
End my search end my trail
I found the wind in my sail
Universal love dwells in my house
Rhythmic heart guides my rouse

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
