Girl From My Past

You can knock at the door but I can’t open, girl from my past.

I remember you at last.

Yes, we had good times then you married some other guy.

Not I.

You were like a broody hen.

I made a mistake then.

Maybe I was over eager, an eager beaver.

A true believer.

My inner caveman came to the fore.

I can’t always be polite, what a bore.

It was not meant to be for you and me.

The rest is history.

Looking back parts were very good but not the whole.

Stain on my immortal soul.

It is best that the past be laid to rest.

I did not pass the test.

I hope you had a happy life.

Someone else’s wife.

That’s life.

I represent to you a false start.

You have a piece of my heart.

You are part of my life and I of yours.

Your memory endures.

It would be very strange if we met again.

Would I get it right then?

Hello anyway and goodbye.

Here’s to the sweet by and by.

You and I.

Knowall

Is God a knowall or does he exist at all?

No one likes a knowall, he shoves facts in your face.

He knows better he puts you down he is a disgrace.

God, on the other hand, is a mystery man.

Find out for yourself, that’s his plan.

He is self effacing to a fault.

Someday I may break into his vault.

The Question

My best friend Michael O’Brien said I will be famous after I’m dead.

He died first, instead.

Do I want fame for myself, no.

The truth comes dropping slow.

I want what everyone wants but hardly dares to expect.

World peace, an end to war and argument as you might suspect.

I write my words, they say the same.

Allow children play a game.

Maybe Michael’s right, may my words be true.

I want a perfect world for you.

How about me too?

A perfect world requires perfected people, they are rare.

The burning question, do you care?

Life

If you’re before your time you’re too early and too late too late.

I don’t believe in fate.

Play the hand life dealt you, no cheating, play it well.

Take your time, consider things, you are one step from Hell.

Things are never quite as bad as they seem, wake up from a bad dream.

Possibly you win, possibly you lose, does it really matter, your choice is yours to choose.

Practice makes perfect when you care.

Fame is neither here nor there.

Anonymous Letter

I am who you don’t know but I know you.

I saw you through the keyhole too.

Be not afraid, I shall not spill the beans.

Do it yourself by all means.

Headlines in the paper inches high.

People will know your name before you die.

In the meantime carry on.

I’m watching you, I’m here, I’m gone.

Abandoned Child

Unwanted gift.

Will this child get short shrift?

In swaddling clothes and a free manger.

Deposited by a stranger.

Delivered to the door.

Do you want more?

Another mouth to feed.

How do they breed?

Children in need.

He will grow up to be a man, if allowed.

Who wants his shroud?

Rain brings flowers from every cloud.

Baby, baby cutchy coo.

Is that you?

Happy Christmas too.
