Moments in Time


I was there then not
Memories remain
But are not the truth

As pearls on a necklace
Glowing only to fade

Yet I am here, always here
Trying to get to there
Back to you





The Play


When time has passed and I am worn
Upon this wrinkled brow is borne
Of conquests long since forgotten
And treasures won, spent, and begotten

Cracking knees speak of prayers spoken
In times of need and a soul so broken
Upon this back, life’s burden was laid
And with every breath a debt was repaid

And finally as I lay me down to sleep
I know that nothing was meant to keep
A world, a stage, upon which we play
Another act will begin as we fade away
