Time Goes On Laughing - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Someone special sends songs
Dancing through the hallways of eternity,
Bringing beauty into brief moments
With words of pure poetry,
Like redolent rain drops
And soft snow flakes,
That so easily fall
Into endless green and flowing lakes;
There time swims
Like a womans deep beauty,
Passing by but once... laughing as she goes
At us, the worn and the weary -

The poets speak of her
Like drunken fools,
Sipping forgetful champagne
At the edge of wading pools;
No one truly knows
What no one sees,
As time moves carelessly on...
Leaving us in our own dust, of old and doubtful memories;
She won't be returning here
Another day,
Burning all her bridges
As laughing she goes upon her way -
