Limerick of The Lost

The Lost

Tempest tossed,

he sure was lost,

so very plain to see,

his wild and foolish spree,

life's deep cost.

Life Dreams

For all our many thoughts

of glory, fame, and wealth,

there comes a time

in every life

when substance matters more.

Thinking back...



Hang onto what is real;

the rest is huff,

and puff,

and stuff.

Even love is real.

It's something we can feel.

Looking ahead...



How much of life have we forgotten?

All the sweet and none of the rotten?

Breakfasts, lunches, dinners?

What times were our real winners?

Pause to capture and enjoy life.
