Fading Past

Talking with shadows,
to pass stagnant time.
Feeling so hollow,
distant voices chime.

Be present today,
push the past away,
what the mind replays,
perceptions display.

So hard to swallow
pain that sticks like grime,
simple to wallow
in an endless climb.

Push past yesterday,
or the old will stay,
leave all where it lays,
heal and feel okay.

Seeking tomorrow,
hope all is sublime,
choosing to follow,
a future so prime.

Life will often sway,
and carry dismay,
enjoy the sun rays,
smiling past each day.

Through Time

Breezy bright day,
days float through time,
time flies and sways,
sways as it climbs.
Climbs over fears,
fears create views,
views of the years,
years that left hues.
Hues alway lasts,
lasts underneath,
underneath vast,
vast memories.
Memories haunt,
haunt to stop cheer,
cheers build a fort,
fort made to clear.
Clears up a path,
path touches skies,
skies without wraths,
wraths say “goodbye”.
Goodbyes allow
a sense of peace,
peace offers vows,
vows fill the breeze.

Time can be so cruel,
exhausting all fuel.
Removing bright smiles,
providing great trials.

Time has no pity,
erasing pretty.
Creasing the defined,
forming wrinkled lines.

Time is not gentle,
feeling quite vengeful.
Presenting sworn fate,
arriving too late.

Time holds memories,
playing reveries.
Reliving day dreams,
allowing live scenes.

Time quickly visits,
minute by minute.
Greeting just to pass,
boring moments last.

Time can carry smiles,
that linger a while.
Visions of high slopes,
creating great hopes.

Time is imagined,
while being examined.
Ever intangible
non understandable.

Time does not exist,
running to persist.
Assisting life’s course,
without a true source.

Time will give the time I need
to enjoy life and feel complete
to supersede
with no defeat
I tap my feet as I proceed

Time will help me understand
why life did not follow my plan
I was not damned
It was a span
where some things slipped out of my hands

Time will ensure I succeed
my wishes will become concrete
all guaranteed
life will be sweet
every ambition will exceed

Time will make good luck expand
all “possible” transforms to “can”
fortune withstands
the dreams that ran
learn to receive so life is grand

Time will grow like planted seeds
lessons that pass will not repeat
finally freed
feeling upbeat
embracing life at lightning speed

Time will one day stop and stand
absorbing how it all began
a grain of sand
meets natures fan
letting today be where it land

A prolonged time
that sailed along,
reciting lines
in a mute song

Extended time
that held too tight
ignoring signs,
hopes fly like kites

Repeated time
revolving tune,
essence that forms
a warm cocoon

An evolved time
clearing mistakes,
provide heartaches
with needed breaks

Infinite time
learns to abide,
control the speed,
that you provide
