Memory

When tears come unbidden and grief can’t be hidden.

Life goes on, take refuge in a song.

A period of contemplation.  Never again.  Consternation.

It is, it was, it will not be.

Life’s history.

Sadness for what is gone.

Life goes on.

Still, memory is there.

And always will be for those who care.

Memory is in the air.

Searching

Searching for you is like searching for the holy grail.

I went to the café with no avail.

I met a man with a stutter, some might call him a nutter.

He remembered my birthday, he has a good memory you see.

Unlike me.

Anyway I’ll come another day.

Please don’t stay away.

I appeal to fortune, I appeal to fate.

All I have to do is wait.

You are a poem, a poem come to life.

My imaginary wife.

Have I gone too far?

As far as a star.

Your Face

I saw you once with worry on your face every other time you were filled with grace.

I saw you walking in the Sun you smiled and so did I.

I said hello I did not say goodbye.

We went our separate ways I hope we meet on other days.

I have not yet sold you my book, I hope you read and look.

A ray of sunshine in this life of mine.

A glass of wine.

Who knows maybe some happy day you and I will find our way.

Until then I remember your face.

Charm and grace.

Walk

A girl walks out across the world one step at a time.

Through the sunlight and the shade, everything looks fine.

To her destination, is that work or play?

A smile upon her face, I say good day.

She is in no hurry but she is getting there.

With her dog and bag and purse, she seems to have no care.

A smile upon her face for me and a smile on mine.

We may pass some words today or another time.

Flower

I saw you walking by with a flower in your hair.

You did not see me there.

I said hello, you did not hear me though.

Girl I barely know.

You have charm.

God between us and all harm.

I’ll chance my arm.

You are a beautiful view.

The Sun comes shining through.

That’s you.

A ray of sunshine in a world of grey.

Have a nice day.

A lot of people have worry on their face.

You have grace.

Smiling face.

The Sea

Looking at the sea, thinking of infinity.

It means a lot to me.

What lies beyond the horizon, more sea.

As if what you see is not enough.

The world is made of stuff.

I can swim but have not for some while.

I never swam a mile.

I also dive but not from a great height.

The height might give me a fright.

The Earth is largely covered in water, looking at it brings peace.

To think it stretches as far as Greece.

Some places are suitable for a honeymoon.

Return to Earth very soon.

Its nice to know the sea is there, I don’t know why.

Not to speak of the sky.

Beautiful Day

Coffee at a café in the shade.

Pass the time of day with creatures God made.

One man had a guitar he bought as a present for a man who can play.

There’s more to tell, have you got all day?

One quoted Latin unsure what it meant.

I told of myself when young, am I Heaven sent?

The day is, that’s for sure.

We come and go and some of us endure.

Latin is a dead language, it does not change.

A man I spoke to lives on a mountain range.

He walks, so do I but not so far.

The Sun has come and is our guiding star.
