There's Hope Yet - Poem by Marilyn Shepperson

Some say that there's a lot more pleasure
In the wanting, than the getting
I disagree, for over the years
So many dreams have disappeared
And many plans and ambitions
Were never allowed to come to frutition
Life always seemed to find a way
Of putting obstacles in my path
Doing what other people wanted
And what other people asked
At times I've felt as if I were
A ship just drifting on endless seas
Yet I have never given up the hope
Of finding that longed for harbour
For some day, my time will come
I'm certain that it will
I need no captain for my helm
Ah, bring me that horizon
