No Passions (poem)

No passions stood in this one’s way

No longer could heart like this stray

While others would show their dismay

As yesterdays just passed away


No passions stood in this one’s way

When his aid and counsel were sought

By those with confusion were fraught

So still was the comfort he brought


When life brought on reason for tears

No longer could heart like this stray

As promise’s light disappears

His footsteps familiar now nears


The scent of compassion would bare

As surrender filled empty air

While others would show their dismay

The cause would be lost in his stare


And then to the sunset he turns

A memory no longer burns

Another heart no longer churns

As yesterdays just passed away

Music only

I am left feeling wistful Martin, somehow a feeling of loneliness pervades.

We can't do much about our yesterdays, they're in the past, but we can make sure our todays are heading in the right direction. Enjoyed your poem.

Todays are just as important as yesterdays, for today will be yesterday soon enough.
