brooding

To the present Me

A fleeting glance in the passing

caught me off gaurd;

I see myself.

But I don't recognize

 

The stranger seems familiar

is it distortions in the mirror

or is it her

that makes her a stranger?

 

Been long enough

since I spent time with her

listening to her joys

fixing her hear break.

 

And life seems to rush past

before you know it

She is wrinkled with snow for hair

And full of regrets

 

There she is,

Looking at me with animosity

I took her for granted

didnt find time for her

cos I was too caught up in life

 

I try to cajole her 

put a smile on her real face

and make her ebullient

cos arthitis never touches the soul.

The Very Last Goodbye

Folder: 
Love Poems

no one was left to bar the way
so I said my last goodbye today
to every tear I've ever cried
and every heart that ever lied

though many words remain unspoken
and my heart has been often broken
the time has come to finally say
that last goodbye today

It is my very last goodbye
no more tears can I cry
as I left you there alone
moving into the unknown

I cannot take a chance anymore
this old heart is far too sore
So it is best I be on my way
lest I change my mind and stay

I give in to one last heartbreak
looking at you standing in my wake
remembering all that had gone before
and what will be again nevermore

It is my very last goodbye
no more tears can I cry
as I left you there alone
moving into the unknown

I see your eyes, I feel your pain
but I cannot risk to love again
So I close the door in the way
as I say my last goodbye today

With nothing left I could say
I watch the coming of the day
I realize love is just another word
without meaning yet often heard

*chorus to fade out

It is my very last goodbye
no more tears can I cry
as I left you there alone
moving into the unknown

It is my very last goodbye
no more tears can I cry
as I left you there alone
moving into the unknown

*in a whisper

Goodbye
