To look into those eyes . see that smile . Sometimes you wonder why you were put on this earth.

In sixty odd years that I have been here . What great things have I done?

Is there only my name to be remembered ? A picture to look at in a album.

No fame or riches . I do have children to love . And to carry on my name.

 

But in this world I have not found happiness.

Though it might have been within reach. I could not grasp it.

And with years dwindling to a few..it make me wonder why. Or is it too late.

Good times . There were a few. Lives intwined around mine.

Warm flesh against mine. Hearts offered. Lives offered.

 

But just chosen for a short while. Life changing loves.

Smiles not only in the face. But in the heart too.

Of those that touched me. And those that I touched.

It is funny that the holding of a hand can bring back youth.

A kiss can open up a whole universe. Thank you for letting me be there.

Even for a short while.

 

A love you never knew was there . But made you so happy when you found out it was.

For mine was there also. Only fear of rejection kept you from saying the words

Words too late. Many years too late.

Passion can be at it's highest . But fades away as years go by.

No longer to be found again. alas I try.

A look can offer you a night. Or a lifetime of nights.

 

To live a dream each day and make them come true every night .

To really know that you are wanted there.

This would mean the world to me.
