No Passions (poem)

Updated on October 12, 2013

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

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

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