(My 500th post!)

Restlessness has been a friend of mine
It came to me quite fast
Nights usually filled with resting sleep
Are now filled with thoughts of the past

I fell asleep at 5 last night
And I can still recall
The long, long night before
When I didnít sleep at all

But sleep is such a far-off thing
When thinking of the past
A thing that canít be changed, I know
But thoughts of it still last

And, then the most frightening part
Of the long nightís deepening thoughts
Are of the unsure road ahead
And of battles that have to be fought

The days donít seem like days at all
But fuzzy, shady dreams
My whole world has turned upside-down
And wonít return for awhile, it seems

Restlessness is a friend of mine
And probably will be for awhile
Until my strength and hope returns
Until I walk this mile



†"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." -Oscar Wilde

Congrats on 500 posts LoveBug!

This poem is perfect.

Ah, I call them the forks in the road
of life ----and dream of the past many
times to help me shape my future.
I understand this poem well, for I am
a restless one, that can barely sit still.

Little LoveBug~
Congratulations, young lady.
Quite an accomplishment ...
becoming a Senior Member at such
a youthful age.

More important is your growth as a poetess.
We've all had the pleasure of seeing you get better and better.  I hope you're proud of your work ... you have reason to be !

The past is a nice place to remember ...
as we move forward.  
Love ya', gal.

Congratulations on the 500th.  Oh, how thinking and remembering can cause so many problems.  I've been there too.
