Reach Out For The Sun (poem)

Updated on August 13, 2013

Reach out for the sun

The promise of morning

The richness of day

-

Those things of some past

Float off in their dreams

They beckon us in

With familiar warm arms

To share their fate

-

While shadows in the street

Await some sign of light

Forgotten in a mirror

Covered with gallant words

Which no one can eat

-

Crying reminders

Which scars a bleeding heart

With promise and hope

Of deeds left undone

By something lost in sand

-

And so it unfolds

The weight of the undone

Those aging wish I woulds

When all the time it’s calling

Reach out for the sun

      It begs the question; If we could do it all over again, would we?

      Nice work, Martin.

      As we grow older we often look back. We often say, "I wish I had of..."

      It reminds me of the prayers for forgiveness for the sins of omission as well as commission. Perhaps we can catch up and do a few of those things that we should have done and didn't. A thoughtful poem.
