Here Was A Man (poem)

Here was a man with so much more to show

So many marvels danced about his head

Another dream he had awhile ago


As people stopped he let his wishes flow

Until at last this rumor they all shed

Here was a man with so much more to show


When life made time his grandeur they would know

By all the richness which a man can spread

Another dream he had awhile ago


And followers who came in legend’s tow

Would sing of Joys upon the path he lead

Here was a man with so much more to show


And in the moonlight of the evening’s glow

So many pondered on the things he said

Another dream he had awhile ago


But sands of time had bled hope’s grandeur low

As shivers of the truth shared old man’s bed

Here was a man with so much more to show

Another dream he had awhile ago

As we grow older I suppose we all become a shadow of ourself.... let's hope that we can push that time further away!

It does not seem right or proper that by living life, we lose that which

makes it so rich and vital.

You expressed it beautifully, Martin.

A verse that gives us cause to weigh what we are and what we aspire to be. We might all be better if we could see what others see in us and rise to our capabilities just once before we meet the reaper. ~WB
