NOT MEANT TO BE

by thereluctantpoet

By Bree Leto – Secret Thoughts Within and Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

DIVORCE

There are many things you can’t control

Your heart

Another’s heart

no matter how much you might want to
HOPES AND WISHES

It is a fact of life that

hopes and wishes

dreams and prayers

don’t always happen or come to pass

DEAD END
We may have relationships and love

that we have always dreamed of

but sometimes

happenstance

fate or luck

intervene and force a change

to our plans and choices

ONLY FOR AWHILE

Not all relationships

are meant to be forever

sometimes they are only meant

to be for awhile

There may be many things you can’t control

but there are some things you can
DREAMS

Maybe it’s time to dream a new dream

It might be time to

move on

forgive and forget

let go

YOUR OWN PATHWAY

and follow your own pathway

TO A BETTER LIFE

into a new and better life

For Pops

by Jem Croucher

Look at me now Pops, I’m an older man now
I’m past sixty, the years have flown by
That slap in the face
has long turned to grace
yet still on this day I will cry

Nineteenth of February nineteen seventy-four
etched in my mind for all time
The day that you left
leaving family bereft
although all these years later we’re fine

Forty-three Valentines

by Jem Croucher

Forty-three valentines I have now sent
to my one true love every year
Our love it grows stronger
and may it live longer
I trust as I hold her so dear

And we have been wed forty-two of those years
Soulmates, we two are entwined
So here now from me
here is forty-three
Will you please be my Valentine?

When it’s safe

by Jem Croucher

When it’s safe I will be out there
in the Sussex I hold dear
on the byways and the beach
where the air is ever clear

When it’s safe I will have music
live and loud as it should be
with songs that sing of life
which will then be Covid-free

When it’s safe I will be hugged
and will hug my loved ones too
replenishing that feeling
of the love I long to do

TEMPTED

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm   4:20 1/7/2017

TEMPTED - 50 PERCENT

I was tempted

but I resisted

it was easy

when I had no desire

when I had no need

when I had no hunger

I said, “No”

before I met you
