Lost Dreams - my Poem
We all have dreams and plans but, looking back, they didn't all come true
When first we meet, and fall in love, we are bubbling with enthusiasm, and plan all sorts of wonderful things together. But ultimately our boundless energy falls away, along with some of our dreams. Harsh reality takes over. Every day life brings joy, but this may be tempered with hardship.
When we look back, our dreams and plans sometimes came to nothing and eventually, though we may still be happy, aches and pains limit us.
This is My Poem - "Looking Back - Lost Dreams"
Things change, and we change with them
Looking Back - Lost Dreams
Times when they said they'd write plays
Together - but never did
Planned a trip on the Orient Express
Instead took the sleeper to Inverness
Parties and laughter
Fun and romance
The sun smiled upon them
When life was a dance
But night follows day
And nothing will last
It seems we all pay
For our sins of the past
Pain comes with children
Strong love may bring grief
And pain least expected
Steals joy like a thief
Here an ache, there a pain
Syndromes, ailments and twitches
They've left the fast lane
To flounder in ditches
Who would have thought
When those hopefuls first met
They'd be grumpy old codgers
Watching TV in bed.

In a large city like London, in many places where there are underground stations or busy main roads, you will find interlinked passageways. When they are deserted, they can be very eerie, disturbing places, and you wouldn't want to linger there.

I was so moved by Malala's story and seeing her on television that I just had to put something down on paper. I thought and thought about it, and decided to write a poem in her honor. It's not a particularly good poem , but I sent it to her in...
