I Live In The Past

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.


Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived

Dreadful Thoughts

Dreadful thoughts
Lead the way
In the morning
Throughout the day
My purpose it seems
Is to take
Those awful thoughts away.

Put them in a place
They can’t speak
Can’t have their say
Those dreadful thoughts
Which are just a heartbeat
A moment
A thought away.

Dark And Foreboding

Fall Rain ~ photo by photo

Dark and foreboding
The light does not shine
Muddy tracks are erased
In the water running past.

Grasp the heartbeat make it last
Not lost in the dismal, tragic past
For we are here and must trust
It will, forever last.
