dreams of an endless time
a day when I was young
once when the air was soft
and the moon still held it's glow

mem'ries of a better dusk
an eve of youth and joy
where things were carefree
and the nights full of fun

premonitions of a powerful dawn
a morning of strength and beauty
as the men toiled in the fields
and brought home the things they'd grow

oh I once had a plan
once, I had a vision
today I have the truth
tomorrow will be a revision

a piece of paper in the sand
a shallow hole on a distant land
penstrokes from a well-worn hand
held in place by a silver band

show me the future as it is
play the video of my dreams
sing the songs of yesterday
for tomorrow is hope it seems


 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

Desperado, this is really beautiful
full of memories and hopes -- and just
heart warming ----ah, the sands of time.

Hi there. This is wonderful work. Nice to see you here.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

This one certainly has a sad, haunting quality.  But I'm glad it ends on an upward note.  I don't know how old you are, but I remember feeling older when I was twenty-one, than I do now at more than twice that.  It's all in the experiences and emotions, I think.
Very nice poem.

P.S. Oh, and I LOVE the title!!



 The spiritual wind that holds survivors aloft, plants the seeds from which bloom new hope ... R.J.G.

I love these lines:

"oh I once had a plan
once, I had a vision
today I have the truth
tomorrow will be a revision"

Another poem of insight and wisdom from a guy who is lucky enough to have a real life...!! LOL...

Enjoyed this, James. We're gonna miss you when you go away again. *sob*

I had a plan once...  Jeeze - that seems like so long ago.     It is refreshing to know you see tomorrow as "hope" my friend.  I hope your inspiration is contageous.
