****************

Daytime now has faded
 All it’s promise is now jaded
And now comes the night
when the shadow hides the light.

Shadows and dreams race
As in the starlight’s glow
Reflects a moonlit face
In the cold of winters snow.

************

Never near, never far

From where you are

Breathe, me in…
I am there
I am here
I am in the air
Breathe

************

Worry not the past
The future may not come
Live each moment as the last
Love until this life is done

************

All the time, then never,
Moments I will hold forever.
A loss, a gain,
 A neverending joyful pain.

************

Walk a troubled mile
Before you sing a troubled song.
Think before you smile
And pretend there’s nothing wrong.

************

On this very special day
I go to a sacred place
A haven that is only mine
No problems there to face
Only dreams and memories
Of love and peace abide in there
In past and present in this abode
In this quiet ethereal air.

************

Evening angels bid good night, sleep well ’til the morning’s light

Good Night Everybody

  1. Worry not the past, the future may never come. Beautiful truths that are a strong reminder to live in the here and now. Beautifully written my dear friend. XO Sheri

  2. Inion wants me to tell you she loves the mask barely visible in the eye next to the green pupil. Magical indeed!! 😉

  3. Well done our friend! The perfect ending to a horrific day was coming by your blog and reading this beautiful, passionate poem. As we do with all our poet friends, we make sure to tell them our favorite part of the work. With this one it was really hard as the whole of the poem was sublime & the entire body felt dependent upon each word. Which is brilliant by the way!! Here is our favorite:
    “And now comes the night
    when the shadow hides the light.
    Shadows and dreams race
    As in the starlight’s glow
    Reflects a moonlit face
    In the cold of winters snow.”
    Such perfect words on this wintry night as we wait on the latest snow storm to move in!! Absolutely love this & sharing it now~ 😉

    • ‘Twas not a single poem, dear ladies, but simply a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and ideas to short to do anything else with. Thanks for your wonderfully kind comments.
      Paul

  4. Paul I am certain we really are cousins because you feel like my long lost one to me. Sleep well my friend~
