Moment by moment

Minute by minute

You and I Disappear

Into the vast well of time.

All that was,

All that is,

All that will be

Mere mirages of the mind.

Embrace what is,

Enjoy while it lasts

For life and love and joy

Are fleeting at best.

There was a boy

Who loved too soon,

With a kind heart

And an easy smile.

There was a girl

Who guarded her heart,

With high flying dreams

And twinkling brown eyes.

There was a love

That never took off

Like a Song unsung,

Like a tale untold.

My life was a tiny boat

Upon a sea at low tide,

Nodding and bobbing

Among friendly waves…

Then you came along,

And Disrupted what I’d carefully built.

For a while, all was well,

The waves were calm and placid

My boat kept bobbing on,

In search of new horizons,

Sandy shores and lovely people.

One day, there was a wave

That came up all at once

Threw my little boat

Flat out on some rocks.

It blew leaks,

Its paint blistered,

It broke in half,

It sank to the bottom.

Spring

Radiant is the sun

Clear and warm the day

Blue skies and not a cloud

Bright and sweet is the morn.

The light through the trees

Shine smooth and golden

The swing sets in the park

Full of kids and laughter.

The dew drops on the grass

The new shoots on the plants

The wildflowers looking up

Tell me Spring’s finally here.
