  • a rhyme unwritten...a song unsung

    This life is but a moment that I represent
    and when I'm old I'll recollect on how quickly it went
    Should I be blessed enough to remember those who truly care
    nothing will hurt as much as the times I wasn't there...

    My eyes have grown pale, the twinkle now gone
    Ever so frail are these legs I stand upon
    My feet shuffle slowly across the cold wooden floor
    and sometimes I can't remember who I am anymore
    Yet every once in awhile, for a brief moment in time
    I'll have a vivid memory of who I was in a rhyme
    Ha!...A lifetime ago, long since out of sight
    These days my fingers are so stiff I'm no longer able to write
    Let's see now, even were I able, what might I write of
    I've since given up on dreams, desires, love...
    All of the things that I thought that I had when I was young
    now just a rhyme unwritten...a song unsung
    You see, I lived for the world and all the treasures it would bring
    only to find I have nothing on the day of death's sting
    The gallows of the world surely slowly let me swing
    as they taught me a man becomes a pawn once he thinks he's the king...

    I dry my eyes and try and hide and escape from the pain
    as the faces blend together and the smiles turn to rain
    Memories sadly dance behind an old man's stare
    and nothing hurts as much as the times I wasn't there...

              Not only that, but Journey is my favorite band. What that has to do with anything...fugghedabout it.
