New Chapter - Poem by Denis Martindale
One chapter ends, another starts -
Just like another game of darts.
New thoughts take hold, new people speak,
Past characters play hide-n-seek.
New meals are made, new shows are seen...
Forget about life's in-between...
Fade out the memories, let them go...
Pretend you just don't want to know...
Tune out the times you once esteemed,
Dismiss the dearest dreams you dreamed,
Then break the pen that praised her name
And brought her honour, glory, fame...
Move on to greet some pastures new -
The sky above is just as blue...
Transcend the traumas life inflicts
And soothe the wounds with gentle licks...
Patch up the heart that drips life's blood,
Refuse to wallow in the mud,
Cherish the chapter that's just begun
And close the book on the previous one...
