Chasing Rainbows

Rating: 4.7

Chasing rainbows
That should have followed the rain
Chasing old loves
‘cause no new loves came
Chasing old dreams
For no new dreams came along
Writing old love letters
‘cause there are no new words to be found
Oh, I am just a fool
Who will never learn
Deep in my heart
A spark continues to burn
Urging me always onward
To the no where end
Where I’ll be forgotten
By foe and friend

It's easy to dwell in the old days when the present is unfulfilling. But as long as you keep moving forward, that's also part of the journey, and I doubt that you will 'arrive' forgotten. Every life you touch along the way is changed by that moment in some way. Nice piece of work, David - I know the feeling. Linda

This is such a great poem filled with profound thoughts! I mean how true is it that if we keep doing the same thing we can not expect to get something different...yet we continue on the same path over and over even when we know we are not happy where it leads! ? Great title and imagery..a very well writen piece by a very intelligent and talented poet. Have a Great day and thanx 4 sharing. =Shelley=
