A New Poem


The following poem is both about the passage of time and the passage of life.


As I sat at my desk the other day, my thoughts were on yet another bought of writer’s block. I also thought about how many things I still want to accomplish before I die. It occurred to me that almost all of us probably die with tasks unfinished, or dreams unfulfilled. Thus this poem was born.


As I Fade

As the sun goes down on my story

I have horses unridden,

And dreams once forbidden

Now all are forgiven.

Another day comes:

Not for him,

Not for her,

Definitely not for me.

The future:

How fast it bleeds

Into the past!

Alone in the dark I will listen.

My tears still glisten

And glide down my face

In helpless disgrace.

I will pray

For those who will live

For another day.
