Poems from another Lifetime Part 6


It's been a hundred years
Since you went away
In a hundred years
New generations come and go
The old ones forgotten
It's a different world now
And in my world
I can't find you
But for a hundred years I'm looking
To the day.


To be with you forever
Is what I want most of all
And forever is
A long, long time.


I brushed my teeth this morning too.
And while I did I thought of you
And how terrible it would be
If at this time you could see me

I looked into the glaring mirror
Things are pretty bad I fear
Couldn't sleep at all last night
So I read a book by weak flashlight
Finally at quarter to twelve
Underneath the covers I delve
Lying there, thinking things
As I drowse off the telephone rings

I was lying there, thinking of you
Kind of a silly thing to do
That blasted phone just had to ring
At times like this I hate that thing!
Then we start that grand old game
Of "why don't you try to guess my name?"
Ten minutes thus go by
And finally the stupid guy
Realizes he doesn't know me at all
And hangs his phone upon the wall

I look back in the mirror again,
Shut my eyes and blink, and then
My cherry roommate says "hello"
She's still wondering why I told her
Where to go.


Five yellow daffodils, for me.
Even a poem cannot express
What I want to tell you
All I can say is THANK YOU
From the innermost spark
Of that which is me.


Those eyes of blue
Questioning and deep
Blue you can lose yourself in
Mirrored in the blue
Are innocence and maturity together
Those eyes that mine are searching
For the only clue I can get
As to the owner's true feelings
Eyes that hide many mysteries
But can't hide love
Blue, which soon might be
A memory only
Haunting me night and day.


They didn't love him
He who was sweet and kind
They didn't want him
His love became hard to find
They rejected him
Looked at him with scorn
They refuted him
So his heart was torn

Somewhere there was another
Who'd been unwanted as he
Someone who wanted him
That someone was she
She and He confided
And found that some did care
He and She went searching
And found the world more fair

Both of them together
Discovered that there was love
Two of them together
With help from One above
Smiling faces now greet them
God had answered their plea
But what would have happened
If He had never met She?

This is part of a series of poems which were written years ago before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Some were written when I was a professing atheist and an alcoholic. If you have read my pieces since I came to Jesus I think the contrast is evident.
