One More Day (poem)

Updated on March 20, 2015

He sips the gentle breath of one more day

Outside he hears the reasons of dismay

From where he sits they seem so far away

Amid a dream he thought to always stay

-

The paths he lit revealed some magic kissed

The scent of hope he mingled in the mist

And every smile and heart he would enlist

To mold a tale which no one could resist

-

And so he passed each moment of each day

Another need received the treasure of his mist

Another hand his endless time enlist

And where he walked a part of him would stay

-

He never knew the darkness he had kissed

Believing he was clear of such dismay

The one he knew had somehow passed away

And he alone a question must resist

-

The dreams he had now sadly couldn’t stay

The days of hope are footsteps far away

His mind is filled with reasons of dismay

He sips the gentle breath of one more day

      Beautifully melancholy. I like the idea of 'sipping' a breath.

      Lovely.

      Very elegant. Somehow there is a beauty in the sadness.

      "He sips the gentle breath of one more day" - what a profound line, Martin! The rest of the poem is so sad, but that one line gives hope to the sentiment.
