Did I Imagine (poem)

Updated on February 17, 2017

Did I imagine all of it away

So strange the kind of things which disappear

When even hiding places seem to stray

Where shadows do not have to reappear

-

Did I imagine all of it aside

So strange when pictures of a truth assail

The trace of grace left hidden there inside

This soul for many others did avail

-

Did I imagine all of it awhile

Before it ran a course through other’s lives

And put askew a world that they once knew

-

Did I imagine all of it would smile

While everything inside my body rives

Did I imagine you will see me through

Music only

      I can see from your profile's "My Activity" that you are either a prolific poet of late, or you have been dipping into your file of poems for here. Either way, keep it up.

      I will be checking for some of our recent limericks to entertain.
