Keep On Running - Poem by Lyn Paul

Running, smiling, laughing
Always
The two of us

The horse, the trough
The hand me downs
The haircuts
The shared bath water
Those songs we still love to sing
Love to hear

To always see 'The Bright Side of Life'
Way before 'Monty Python
WE.. Had to run, before we could walk
This we knew
From the moment we could talk


The Creek was never dry
The road was never long
We walked and walked miles
To find where we belonged

WE never found
What we were looking for
In between heartache
So much to explore

The growing up, however tough
It was always an adventure
In some unusual way
We always found laughter

From both sides now
We have looked at life
What ever wrong we saw
Pain caused, though no blame given
With so much wrong never to be mended

Love never given and we can't give enough
This life of What for? Why?
To just appreciate every moment
Is so satisfying
To reminise seeing Our Life
Just like a major event

These Two Running,
Always, Smiling, Laughing
We could always see the wrong and see the right
We could always solve the problem
Well we thought we could

For it is all about believing
No longer running
Too many buried
But we are still smiling, still laughing

    For it is all about believing
    No longer running
    Too many buried
    But we are still smiling, still laughing.........Though we have to fetch many more difficulties still we have to smile and laugh. Groovy imagination. Enjoyed. Thanks.

    Bonding is the structure that like atoms give a shape to MATTER. If we share a happy bonding with a person we love, life seems so much light and pleasanter. Loved it. (Report)Reply

    Incredible!! This is more like a love-journey or should I say life -journey? It suits them both. This is a wonderful piece. Big ups for that. Me, seeing this piece I feel that poetry is alive. (Report)Reply

    A Beautiful poem Lyn. Feeling blessed is most important. Life is never greener from any side, its the people's thoughts make it greener. Very true said, its all about believing...

    For it is all about believing
    No longer running
    Too many buried
    But we are still smiling, still laughing

    We have to walk many more miles, still smiling and laughing. That's the life. As usual, positive flow of words, really make this poem beautiful. Loved reading it.
