Where have all my years gone
And can I please get them back?
I promise that I won’t waste them
For I never let sad times stack
Up too highly in my world,
In those years of mine now past.
And I nearly always enjoyed myself
I guess why time went so fast.
So where have those years gone
Along with so many great days?
For I can still vividly remember
The songs and music that plays,
Like a magical memory jukebox
Rewinding much love and fun,
As they bring back situations
Where all was said and done.
Oh I can recall so many people
Sadly though some have gone,
Though their days are remembered
When they danced and faces shone,
From disco lights and silhouettes
Or maybe it was too much drink.
But that was in the distant past
Which makes me stop to think,
Just where have my years gone?
For it doesn’t seem that long,
When my features were pristine
Like some newly written song.
Now as I look very fondly back
Over all those years I’ve had,
And people met and places seen
With more happier days than sad,
I feel my lifetime has stretched
Across many a stunning sunset,
But I hope for more to come
As I’m not ready to go just yet.
I am sure many of you can identify with that, especially at the moment when time and days seem to merge in our limited lives at the present, so we must meet this full on, so the start of one of my earlier poms says this……
A positive mind yields a happy heart
For troubles come, and some go slow.
But if you are steadfast in your way,
You can help any heartaches go.
For all of us will have challenges,
And must do our very best to meet
With strongest resolve we can find,
Or get knocked right off our feet,
By seismic shocks that shake you
And possibly cause you many tears.
Though if you tackle these heroically
You may have better future years.
Some of my wise words there possibly? You don’t agree? Ok lol you are entitled….. Try this then against our horrid world at the moment,:-
The roller coaster ride of life
Will test us one and all,
Just when you think you’ve won
That’s the very time you’ll fall.
So up you get and start again
Sorry, but perhaps much wiser,
To continue on your road again
Having fully cleared your visor.
For it’s best to see the road ahead
To ensure no fall or trip,
As without a doubt you will err
If your awareness you let slip.
Gleeful shouts you’ve got it right
Can only lead to sorrow,
For any complacency in this world
Will bring sadness in the morrow.
The wise man says that if you’ve won
And sport the victor’s crown,
Be modest with people going up
You may meet them coming down!
The rollercoaster ride of life
Will test us one and all,
For just when you think you’ve won
That’s the very time you’ll fall.
So take any successes in your stride
And stand proud if you should miss,
For if you have done your very best
No one can give any more than this.
Moving on with our “growth” then, but also sometimes looking back helps you move forward? I think so and had this thought in only the last couple of days with an epiphany of the world more at large, rather than just my personal feelings at the time. For whatever is troubling or upsetting us, there are always many folks worse off…
Days of Tears
Days of tears will come for everyone
But for some will last much longer,
Depending on those choices made
Are you weaker, or lots stronger?
For we’re living today, decisions past
When maybe didn’t count to ten,
So whether we like it now or not
We must accept life as decided then.
But possibly in previous times
Those options did seem right,
So now you must live with them
However hard they come to bite.
A wrong lover or chance declined
May seem sad in the here and now,
But reflecting back to decision time
You were so certain of your vow.
Perhaps to be childless did appeal
Rocking to your very own way,
But in days of flowing tears now
Accept your loneliness today.
For days of tears will always come
With regrets, and perhaps sorrow,
So best to count every blessing now
Or you may cry at each tomorrow.
I think it must be JOKE TIME after that, … oh YES
1) I need a new pencil so “A 2B or not 2B”?
2) I invested heavily in an Origami business, but sadly it very quickly folded….
3) After rubbing sauce into my eyes that made them really hurt, I saw my mistake with Heinz site
4) I have given up going to shopping centres because after seeing one you have seen a mall
Another poem part, and after that perhaps an apt title?
At times I get very weary now
Burdened by my heavy load,
Which often seems impossible
To carry further down the road.
But we all have our challenges
With various levels, large or small,
Because when our lots were decreed
It wasn’t a simple one size fits all.
Thus the smallest may carry most
And the largest just a lightweight.
But this harsh world still ordains
That we must stand up straight.
Possible most of you can recognise that. Don’t worry the end gets more positive so just a little tease from me. (lol buy the book)..
Perhaps after that this poem may give out some thought for reflection and possibly comfort?
I have heard that when you cry
Tears are words the heart can’t express,
But whatever the explanation
It is a sign of great distress.
Of course there are tears of joy
And some of laughter in a form,
But none can seem as heart-rending
As anguish riding out a storm.
Tears of grief or frustration perhaps
Are streaming down your face,
You should not be ashamed of this
As it really is no disgrace.
For those who cry are often caring
And so let their passions free,
Unlike blank faced stone hearts
That other people’s woe can’t see.
We can cry at the world’s sadness
Or what it has all done to us,
So some will weep out openly
Others cry with much less fuss.
But however you shed your tears
When pain’s too much to bear,
It just proves you have empathy
And that you do, really care.
So pucker up, let yourself go
Express emotions and your views,
For if you cannot manage this
You live a life that has no clues.
