There Was A Time (poem)

There was a time amid a Joyous flow

Where rainbow’s hopes each morning would bestow

And winds refreshed the air with season’s spice

Here lovers’ dreams had splendor’s fields to sew

-

A time when smiles and laughter were the price

When bitterness dark shadows would entice

Was nothing thought could turn us from our dance

Or melodies beyond a life so nice

-

But then one sunset met confusion’s trance

With promises perfection to enhance

We humans let our greed command our sight

And ways unknown we struggled to romance

-

It took some time to shine on us our plight

Deep crevasses of shadows marred our flight

Each day would spark new purpose for a tear

Our kisses were the worries hearts incite

-

Yet in our mind a memory stayed clear

It took us to a field which we held dear

Was there we found a flower set to grow

A chance familiar time may reappear

Remembering the love two people share and tapping into it can often be the thread of life to get over the hardships that come our way. Nice sentiment, Martin!

Those good times may only re-appear in our memories, but that is better that not at all. Thanks for the hope.
