Return to the Sea

In these sunset hours of my advancing years,
I recognize some genuine truths about my life..

Some represent the starkness of poor choice...
Others were moments of absolute perfection...

This is such a strange place where I now find myself..
I no longer have dreams..

There is no adventure to summon me...
No longing to reach out seeking warmth, in the early morning hours...

My greatest fear in this life was to outlive my son...
Once that terror was answered..
That horror breached...
Nothing else could harm me, ever...

Then, from nowhere..
Came this fresh inspiration...

A captivating spirit who charmed me...
Inviting and rich in life...

Then again rise the dragons of my past...
Baiting me, once more, into battle..
Taking again from me, any thought of life..
And taking pleasure in sharing with anyone...

You are the poem I shall never compose...
A song written, but never sung...
One of the few remaining joys in my life is the knowledge...
I shall hold you in my heart forever....

Please, for me...
Light a candle...
Say a prayer, and whisper a soft goodbye....
For once again, the wind is rising...
And, the sea is calling me home.....


ALLEN

Cherry_Blossom_: MAY IT BE THAT WHEN 1 WALKS THROUGH THE WORLD THAT THEY LEAVE NO TRACKS UPON TIHS EARTH~BUT~ IN THE HEARTS OF THEIR LOVED ONES. MAY THEY B TRACKS THAT LEAVE A TRAIL OF COMPASSION~LOVE~ UNDERSTANDING AND ETERNAL HOPE...
UPON THIS LAND~ TREAD LIGHTLY & LEAVE NOT ANY TRACE UPON THE GROUND ~
LEAVE ALL THINGS UNDISTURBED AS ONE WALKS THEIR PATH OF LIFE...
ONE MOMENT IS ANOTHERS LIFETIME~ BE EVER MINDFUL OF OTHERS LIVES~ HOPES~ & DREAMS~
THEY MAY INCLUDE YOU... HARM NO OTHERS~ AS THEIR HEARTS ARE AS TENDER AS YOURS...
RESPECT OTHERS WALK IN LIFE~AS~THEIR PATH MAY BE YOURS AS WELL... LISTEN ~
AS YOU WANT OTHERS TO HEAR... SPEAK SOFTLY TOO SO THAT OTHERS MAY HEAR YOU...
TOUCH OTHERS HEARTS~AS YOURS WANTS TO BE LOVED... I HAVE WALKED MANY YEARS TO GAIN THIS WAY OF LIFE~ IT HAS HAD ITS TURMOIL~ TOILS AND SNARES ~ BUT~ I CONTINUE~ KNOWING THAT I WAS FLYING ON THE LOFTY WINGS OF HOPE. WITH EACH PASSING MOMENT
OF MY LIFE I HOPE TO PASS THIS ON TO THOSE THAT ALSO WALK FORWARD
