Have you ever had that feeling?
That you are completely lost.
Your mind and senses reeling,
As in a dark foreboding frost.
I used to play at Pirates,
And sailed the seven seas.
I try to write one poem each day,
I never know what I will say.
Be it love for natures blossoms,
Perhaps, a tale about some possums.
Have you told your kids I love you?
Given them all a big hug today?
In my youth loving words were few,
We were sent out to be out of the way.
My spirits soar on high,
Inebriated with thoughts so pure.
I now can fly,
Nothing is obscure.
Large Baby eyes smiling joyfully at me,
Baby eyes as brown as can be.
Two deep pools most innocent and bright,
To me are symbols of sheer delight.
Do not grieve when I pass away,
Remember it is but another stop upon my way.
I took an acorn and put it in a pot.
I then covered it with earth, not a lot.
Great pleasure was mine watching it grow.
The first budding green came ever so slow.
I have wiped the slate clean,
No more reminders from the past.
Memories of what I have been,
Have vanished at long last.
Once I fried a fish,
That was a tasty dish.
