How Simple Can Simple Be - Poem by keith Durante

The best I've ever done is all the love I've won
remembering to hold them dear each and every one
cherish all the moments that nothing came between
conversations sharing the places we've seen

all the times I've struggled discouraged and alone
wandering aimless just chilled to the bone
recalling broken promises where love didn't reach
all of the lessons that time didn't teach

how ordinary special is just allright with me
taking in the sunset with pleasant company
never feeling foolish for my point of view
content that our laughter rolls out true

reflecting how I've grown out of touch
how simple things didn't seem to matter much
yet how great the hand of human affection
that simply offers a kinder connection

how innocence decays yielding to blind trust
betrayed by the glamour of extravagant lust
lost and stranded, tangled in mystery
How Simple Cam Simple Be...
