We can remember some things as an instant in time
Others seem the minutes crawl by excruciatingly slow
We are all given the same number of hours in a day
Looking back, what have we done, do our efforts show.

Everyone I know cherishes their time off
So my weekends mix time to work and play
But too often when the sun rises after that
It heralds forth what I call Morose Monday.

At times the words rattle in my head
Not always making any sense of things
Yet as I offer them a means of escape
I drop on the page and see what springs.

The radio caused me to pause and think
The host relating reaction to her post

Thinking of what really matters the most.

It wasn’t what I was searching for at the time
When I saw it, I was compelled to look within
Carrying it to the couch, I took a deep breath
To open it, memories would flood once again.

She gave of herself with no expectations
We seldom heard her ask for very much
You could make her smile with just a hug
She always returned such a gentle touch.

About Her

Without her, would there be words or any to read them
Because of her, we mirror bits of wisdom she had to say
Believing her, we stand on our feet and face all that come
Thinking of her, we try to make her proud, every single day.

Thoughtless Ramblings

You might ask yourself, Are You

Then just couldn’t see through.

We have heard of looking for a message in a bottle
What do those words really mean as we contemplate
If we really found the message would we know it
Or maybe we would we realize it just a little too late.

Frost forms on the window, nature’s art
Cold fingers tracing patterns on the glass
Using memories to help warm the heart.

Do you take the time to enjoy the beauty above

We miss looking at such an expression of love.

I saw a poster that asked a question
Is “old enough to know better” a time

One Two Three

One day that now feels so long ago
Two people started to feel a connect
Three words became so easy to say

One heart reached out and of itself
Two hands seemed to want to hold
Three words that now held more hope

One day another held out his hand
Two that seemed so suited pulled apart
Three hearts sharing doesn’t work well

Comprehension doesn’t always come easily
At times stubbornness keeps us from seeing
Maybe I was that way for too long a time
Maybe it was just part of my selfish being.
