If then the stars should fall
Who would speak your name?
If then the universe should collapse
Who would hold your hand?
If then time should end
Who would remember your smile?
If then oblivion

    Not a poem (cause it doesn't rhyme) but I just about had tears in my eyes, you sneaky rascal. Gonna have to read some more of your stuff (undisciplined as it is.. grrr!) (I am 85 and gettin old isn't for sissies.) I found out about two years ago that writing poetry is fun. Maybe I should have started earlier. ta Wes (Report) Reply

    Thank you, Wes. Writing is the one area in my life where I abandon discipline and write what I want to, without convention or rules. To me, poetry can be a sentence or a thousand paragraphs. It can rhyme or not. It can have meter or be random, as long as it is human. I'm not quite 60 yet but I agree, growing old aint for sissies
