Yeah, I Guess - Poem by Bill Galvin

Yeah, I guess, after all I’ve been through,
It may not be surprising what I may do.

Been singing out loud to the tunes I like,
And dancing to the ones that make me move;
I figure if we’re all fools anyway,
May as well be dancing, with nothing to prove.

Found my old sense of humor;
But the only one laughing is me;
But, at least I have a great audience.
You may call that loneliness;
You could be right… yeah, I guess.

Most of my times may be spent alone,
But there’s sure parts of that I embrace;
And since I found that I still got a lot of love to give,
I just want to make sure it ends up in the right place.

No one here I need to impress,
You may call that loneliness;
You could be right… yeah, I guess.

Still looking for a dance partner,
Who sings the same songs as bad as I do;
Don’t know who she may be;
She’ll no doubt teach me some new tunes,
But she’ll have to like to laugh with, and at me.

Life is rolling on as it should;
We’re becoming pretty good company;
And I’m working on Chapter Two in my writes.
But I’m getting writer’s block, it seems,
Since I can’t quite get her in my sights;
Those first steps have to be taken, so I can see,
If there should even be a Chapter Three.

You may call that loneliness;
You could be right… yeah, I guess;
But it doesn’t cause me to love life any less.
Like everything has it’s season,
All things happen for a reason.

    Your welcome, I guess, Kelly. Too bad we have these sentiments, tho. Life goes on.
