Filling the Years


The shadows move, grow long and dark
with ebbing of the day.
Sometimes when I sit down to write,
I have nothing to say.

I scribble, crumple pages up,
then hope my aim is good.
Twirl reading glasses in my hand.
I'd write, if but I could.

First stars appear through window glass,
as crimson fire has set.
The last year held such memories
and few that I regret.

But now the future's on my step
and what am I to do?
So many months and years to fill.
With what, I have no clue.

Perhaps with children I will work.
Bring laughter to their days.
Hold tiny hands, good lessons teach
in oh so many ways.

I know I will paint ocean scenes
and more poems I will write.
In soft starlight of the darkness
I'll still drink in the night.

I'm sensitive with gentle heart
and want to give my best.
To all of you my life will touch,
I hope that you'll feel blessed.

When reading one's lines,
such as yours
know that I'm filled
with many treasures...

"The last year held such memories
and none that I regret."

As long as we have years like that our time will be filled. This is a good poem. Joyce

Michael--a very introspective and hope filled poem. I think anyone who knows you would be blessed.

Within these words and image spent
of time that I now know
as annual festivals herald cherry trees
aglow, yet swiftly do the blossoms fall
white upon the step, and I must breath
deeply as I tell you this: wonderful poetry!

"I am not now that which I have been."

Betty,
I'm glad you liked this. It pleases me much and I thank you, sincerely.


Dee,
Some friends are truly a blessing in a person's life. You are indeed a blessing in my own. You are a light that pushes back shadows and I dearly thank you for your precious friendship. I love you also, my dear and sweet friend.
