A Journey Long

Long ago and far away
I thought I knew the future day
For it was written in the sands
And etched upon the hour hands

But I was young and thought I saw
The perfect answers to my call
Life seemed a swiftly flowing stream
And just ahead a splendid dream

But somehow life just blinked a blink
Abruptly laid me on the brink
So slight the visionary's yaw
So far the spirit came to fall

How could the hand of God proclaim
Such bitter sorrow to my name
A treacherous path and journey long
To reach the place of soul's belong

A question hard of nightly taunt
The fragile heart in daunting haunt
But grew the mind in twist and turn
To reach the place of wisdom's learn

And now the past is just a dream
A misty cloud obscurely seen
Through windy storms of thunderous sound
The spirit easy walks around

And life now swiftly flows to seem
As sparkling crystal mountain stream

Elizabeth,
The beauty of your crystal mist
Behoves this soul to insist.
You are the poetress of my dreams.
And captured my heart and mind it seems.
Your words have spume a golden web,
About an old and wounded head.
I think of you throughout the day.
In essence and a special way.
And have built a secret ivory tower,
Where I think of you by the hour.
It has towers of poetic curve.
With golden verses of observe.
and I read them one by one
And never care if I get done.
Love ya Sy
