Don'T Fail Me Now - Poem by Charles Garcia

People never listen to me, even though time after time
Proves me right, as time and time again, telling me what
I am not.

Repetitive in all my thoughts, building me up to something
I am not, and will never be, always on time, life goes on,
Needs an even keel.

I am no hero, no saint, you see! Just a man striving after a
Dream, mistakes I’ve made a few, yes as I look back,
there was always something to build on, as bridges fail,
when they fall, we pick up the pieces, again stands tall,
For the memories of the past will make it work if we
Learned by our mistakes.

There is always light in your eyes is that light burning there for
Me? Do you still love me? You can never break me down but
You can try, You won’t get through.

My love don’t fail me now, if you do I may never bring you back
don’t fall now, make no mistakes life goes on.

    Scary to analyse, but so true. We all change, and 'life goes on',
    and things never fall back, even if we don't do something, it is already a change,
    Time ticks, clocks, once apart, maybe never together again, for sure never the same. However, maybe better :)
