The poet has said for many a day,
That time is a thief who steals hours away,
And takes the blush from the cheek,
The sparkle from the eye,
A little of all as it passes by.

Time takes the bright luster from the hair,
Steals the gold, but leaves silver there
Gone hearty laughter, the youthful sounds
But when I think of my blessings
Great joy abounds.

A springy step isn't there to see,
Time exchanged it for poise and dignity,
Where once I ran, I now will walk
My best performances
Are only talk.

Time gives one vision of yester-year,
Hard to recall without a tear,
Temporal were the things time took from me,
I've had so many joys
And paid a small fee.

..........................
Next week I'm going to dream,
Of things I used to do
Folks I used to know
And friends that have been true.

I have a friend, his name is Toe,
He's very funny, it's mostly show.
Occasionally the curtains part,
And he reveals the truth, he has heart.

Here is to you dear man,
I care for you more than you know.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

As you dream of friends so true
Remember how much we love you!
So many smiles you give each day
With your poems and your play!
Though saying thanks we might forget
We know we are in your debt.
You are right... time is a thief
But I harbor this belief:
God is proud of His creations
(And except for lack of patience *G*)
You're as fine as a man could be!
I wish you joy - you've paid the fee.

Beautiful work, my dear friend... beautiful heart. *S*

Toe, you have more friends than you may even realize. You have captured the hearts of so many of your fellow Pipsters ~ and a real write like this endears you all the more.

You have seen and done more than most people have done in three lifetimes. May the joys always outweigh any price that you have had to pay along the way.

~ and if you used to walk as good as you now talk, then you must have been poetry in motion!

Love You, Bama Boy!

You know the older I get the more I get like my Mother, and her Mother in regards to their values and what is really important in life.  Over seasons of time the value of family, friends and health far exceed wealth, and other trinkets that somehow embellish our lives with clutter over the years.  You spend the latter part of your life getting rid of all that you thought so important to obtain in the first half.  

Toe, you are one of the smartest darn men I know, and seeing you posted this seems a good time to say, I am glad you crossed my path in the latter part, and you are treasured too.

Next week I'm going to dream,
Of things I used to do
Folks I used to know
And friends that have been true.

"Next week I'm going to dream,

This poem confirms what I've always known.  Toe you are wonderful writer...and perhaps more importantly a great friend. Take care my friend.

believe in what your heart feels...

Toe,

This leaves me feeling a bit sad, a reflection on life and those who have passed through our lives.

This is a very good poem for finding a finger of hope in the fog of grief.

Hope all is well with you, friend.

There is a serious side of you that you
wear quite well....

Next week I'm going to dream,
Of things I used to do
Folks I used to know
And friends that have been true.

You dress your self up in all that laughter, but its great to be able to see that to the heart of you, you're much more then a jokester, you're a friend.
excellent write.

Toe, I am always dreaming. Now, if only one would come true, I would be happy.

Buzz, you are a true friend...right there when you think one of your friends needs you...always putting others before yourself.

Thank you, my dear friend, for being YOU!!
