Closer to the Point

Updated on January 26, 2018

I know that things are close to through
I’ll stay as long as I can to see the things I love
Like you
Like you

I can’t disregard my body giving out
But my mind is not giving in
No it’s not
No it’s not

The thing on mind
Is saving my myself
I need to keep it going
I won’t give it up
I won’t give it away

I wonder if God really hears me
He knows what I’m thinking all the time
I’m getting on
I’m getting on

There’s no point in talking about the past
If I went wrong then that choice is long gone
Is it what I wanted to be
It's what I chose to be

I see your eyes sitting there
Staring into a glass of forgetfulness
You know too much about hurt
I know as much about it as you
I want to say that I want you
I wonder if you can hear me

The thing on mind
Is saving someone like you
I need to keep it going
I won’t give you up
I want to sweep you away

      Sounds like you've had your share of life's challenges. It is wonderful that you have such a positive outlook about your son and yourself in his world. Very enlightened in this day and age of me me me all the time. At least that's how it seems over here in the US. The big bad US.

      I try to write about the truth of life including being honest about myself; no pretension or deceit. No ego. Just a fragile human being like everyone else. I hope that the few people who read my words get my meaning about being understanding towards one another. I'm not a mindless idealist or a flower child. But when I write it is in a sense a reminder to myself about a standard to which I hope to approach. Also I just want to leave some words behind if my children ever really want to know how I think.

      I am a single parent, widowed in young age with a grown up single bipolar son with me. He really is an asset and is my whole world. And, I am his whole world. As you grow older have stronger and stronger faith in God. He will never let you down. You, being an upcoming poet can write such nice poems which carry constructive message to our fellow humans and do a bit of good for others and bring about a better change in this world at large. Blessings. Carry on.

      Thank you for your encouragement. I have plans to work in my field for ten more years which is scary given my age. It may be that I only need to do it for five more but I have a 14 year old daughter and I am paying for her insurance and will pay for her college. My son is there now and will graduate in two years. I started late in life with children and I'm divorced. I work for a public corporation over here as an accountant and it is very demanding. I've always been plagued a bit my thoughts of mortality. Maybe it fuels my writing which is a good thing. I just don't know what is happening inside my body. I have other friends who are now beginning to have health issues and a couple who have passed on. It almost feels like a war sometimes; bullets flying around but you've not been hit. I have some faith in my beliefs but I also know that I'm not more special than anyone else.

      THANK YOU for the encouragement.

      Mark, do not fear growing older. The older you grow, the wiser you get. I will be 68 in Feb, but I feel as young as ever. In fact I work 9 hours a day, 6 day week, shoulder to shoulder with my much younger staff and I am not steamed out at the end of the day either. God is great and works in mysterious ways. God Bless you.

      Thank you again! It is meant to be a song. I was thinking about how I will be 60 in August and yet I feel young. But the words, "Giving out" came into my mind. Was my body giving out or not? I don't feel that way but when I think of my age I have some fears.
