Do you want to know how, you can make true love stay?
How to anchor it down, so it won’t drift away?
Well, first you must learn, how to hold you own gaze
Learn to live in the moment and not wish away days
Do not let your intentions, become meaningless words
Your integrity, the standards, by which you are heard
When life seems too much, there are lessons to learn
Have courage to look inwards and that way you’ll discern
That others may act without care, without thought
Yet within your own heart, you will always stand court
You are never lost or alone, in this strange human land
In another dimension, someone’s holding your hand
Some days you’ll feel sadness, but for whom do you cry?
If you keep looking behind, then the tears will not dry
Learn to trust and live life, without judgement or care
Know you’re meant to be happy, not to dwell in despair
Today is today, the past has taken its leave
The present, a gift, which only you can receive
You’re never a fool; you’re beautiful and unique
There’re a surplus of paddles, in the place called shit creek…
I loved your nautical metaphors. It made me feel at sea. In a good way x
Thanks Vic. x
Twenty-odd years ago I was an editor at a university literary magazine, and some of my best memories were sitting on a floor in someone’s apartment, dividing up the submissions, taking turns reading them, and voting on four catagories: SAVE, NO!, MAYBE, and SoBIG (So Bad It’s Good). You would have made the SAVE box on the title alone. Thanks for sharing.
What can I say?! Thanks for much for the SAVE and for taking the time to stop by.
