Upon My Timeline

Updated on June 28, 2011
Source


If I could go back upon my timeline

And have a chat with me

I'd start near the beginning

when I was barely three


Love sweet girl is needed most

For the ones who soon will fail you

Give it quick thats the trick

And let forgiveness follow


And when your head is swimming

A game of hormones winning

Remember there will be many

Don't pin your life on any


Please know young lady

You've been told a very vicious lie

There is no soul mate, nor forever

Better to delight in each and every


I fear you've not been listening love

So I'll say it once again

All love is good you must not judge it

Fall in as often as you can

      Well we hope...then we have to come up with stuff on the fly when they encounter things we never did....which will be pretty much everything cause I have never lived as a woman... whatchya gonna do?

      Perhaps if we teach our lessons to our offspring they won't have to learn the same ones. Ahhhh, progress.

      The hope you muster in this brings about a desire to instill this very sentiment into my own lil girls. I fear time travel will long in the coming and I won't have the benefit of it.

      Yes even if just to say, "chin up, there is a happy ending." Thanks attemptedhumour.

      Illuminating a murky past, with a bright realistic future, is a message worth heeding.

      All our life lessons would be so much easier to forged if the older us were just there to lead the younger us. Sigh... Thanks for coming by for a read tnderhrt.

      Randy, most entertaining read, here...and true. You have surely sparked some thoughts about what I would say to the three year old me...If I could have listened at that age, I think I would have had a very different life! Thanks!

      Funny WIQ and true. I aspire to be more like my children all the time. They are so resilient and quick to forgive.

      Lovely piece, Randy. And that's great advice to go back through time to give yourself. I have no idea what I'd say to a 3 year-old version of me. He'd probably have a few suggestions for me, though. I was smarter at that age.

      I hear ya, I'm the same way. Doing requests is for lounge singers. Just thought I'd throw it out there. Always entertaining to stop in.

      Thank you Saim, I'm glad you liked it.

      I'm not very good at writing poetry on demand Doug. Usually what I write is already there waiting to be put down. Maybe if I'm feeling childish I could pull it off. Thanks for coming by for a read.

      Wise words for your inner child, but I wonder what her reaction would be? Might make a nice companion piece to this one; the three year olds reply.

      Yes Alekhouse I can do that at least, since I don't know how to travel back in time. At nine, she is already wiser than I.

      I just meant I don't let myself get sad over old lessons, just the recent ones. Thank you Tony; my keyboard is my cure.

      We are our 'old stuff', here and as we are because of it. I always enjoy your catharsis, expressed beautifully as always. Tony

      Awww TL, you can be sad for me, as I generally don't let myself. At least not over "old" stuff.

      That is apt MA, as we are held captive in love. Aren't we?
