Van Winkle Syndrome

Is it really so.....
that yesterday was twenty years ago?
Perhaps just blissful slumbering
Van Winkle Syndrome is so encumbering.
Oh what wondrous dreams were dreamt
it hardly seems two decades spent.
But yet the mirror reflects no lies
and only corrects what one justifies.
Today is tomorrow and tomorrow is today
over seven thousand times it has been that way.
Though at the speed of life it all happens so fast
just wish for the future and it's gone to the past.
So wherever I'm at, I'm glad you're still here
to take memories with me for some other year.

RB

Care to elaborate?

Off your son's computer? Does this mean we will not be graced with your words any longer? Ohh woe is me my friend! I sincerly hope this isn't the last we see of you Robert. I simply loved this poem. I can totally relate to it and it is very well written. Bravo my friend.

Marilyn, a "poet" from another forum sent me a virus and I lost everything on my computer. I am on my son's now until mine comes back for the shop.
