It's After Midnight And Another Day Has Disappeared
Time has to be the greatest magic trick ever
Where does the time go ?
When we do things all day
The hours just slip by with nobody noticing
Before you know it we are at the end of the week
Didn't we just celebrate New Years?
Now it's Feb. 7, 2019
The months clash into the years
The seasons quickly turn
If our life was a book of matches
How quickly we can watch it burn
I hope we keep learning
Helping so many people on our journey
I strongly believe all the good things in our day is worth repeating
The wonderful people in our life are worth seeing
To do this is not always easy
We can easily forget as fast as computer that crashes
All the things we have done
Are gone in just an instant
I spend most of my time at work
With my two days off
I follow up on all the things I had no time for
I hope one day people will find a way
To Unleash Happiness
In such a way
Nobody has ever seen
Creating so many happy souls
Better than a box office smash hit
A best seller for three years in a row
More addictive than any drug on the market
Stronger than the strongest man who walked on earth
Then again if we were suddenly happy that would be no fun
Wouldn't be better finding happiness for ourselves ?
In search of every little place it could be
Finding a sad moment and looking for a way to make it nice
Maybe not at this very moment
But over time
Then other people sharing their own experiences
So we could see how they became happier too
Now that is worth sharing
It would make the front page news
Not just a little articel or a small story under the obituaries
Mankind Found A Way To Make Life Better
Happier for the next person
What a shocker
I wonder if it would even be reported the next day too
I think crime and bad news would continue to force the good news out
It wouldn't be long
Until finally it would disappear
Now instead of telling a good story and making it better
It would be a horror story with the worst of all endings
We would be the actors or actresses that get paid the big bucks
Only to end up miserable in the end
Why don't more people listen to their own conscious saying
If you don't like it done to you
Why would you ever do it to someone else
A simple rule to follow
As I get older
I see many of things in my life that I have done wrong
It's too late
I can't go back and correct what I have done wrong
What I can do is try not to make the same mistakes
Living life is a challenge that takes us everywhere we could possibly be
For me it's being a lot simpler
Relaxing at home
Enjoying my wife and our cat Charlotte
A good home cooked meal
Spending our time together
No matter what it is
Talking about our day
Watching a little t.v.
Playing an old board game or trying to put together a puzzle
Ending with a good night sleep
What more can a person ask for?
If they got it?
Would they be any happier?

Chitrangada Sharan Thank you for being the first to comment on my hub. I know it is so hard to be on the Hubpages and get things done around the house. We constantly have to make choices one or the other. If we are lucky we have our significant others who help us clean while we decide to write. Then we also have to do things for them so they can have some free time to do what they also desire. Because my writing is my hobby and not my job it is hard to justify when I work extra hours and my poems aren't complete. They are constantly being reshaped and fine-tuned to make them extra special. When I write a poem I get a personal satisfaction of completion and an inner feeling of peace. So different than a job and getting a days pay for a days work. At work, there are few coworkers who care what we do and how we do it. Appreciation rarely comes from management. When I write stories and feedback comes in waves. Sometimes instantly and other times weeks later. Thank you for so much for your support and comments that drive me to do better. One comment goes a long way. Even though we can't stop time it is so important to enjoy all the time we have doing the things we love. Wishing you a wonderful night.

Gypsy Rose Lee You shared something so special and beautiful. I strongly believe our loved ones that have passed constantly leave us signs that we will know it is too specific to be just coincidence. Embrace all the love and the wonderful thoughts that sweep through your mind. This love is yours to cherish forever. You are still the wonderful person you were when you were with your husband for many years. Those memories are very special and keep that way for life. You also have to give yourself permission to live your life with new people and experiences. I believe your husband would only want you to be happy. Thank you so much for all you do. Have a fabulous Friday.

Well, I am hoping that now that the Chinese are ringing in the Year of the Pig I might just get really lucky this year. To make a long story short all the wonderful years spent with my soul mate in Latvia he called me a pet name which is Ruksis in Latvian and translates to Piglet. It was an affectionate term we both agreed on and all those years he hardly ever called me by my real name. When he died I said to my stepdaughter that Ruksis has died too and only kept a handful of pig mementos. Well, I think my love from up above thought I should fondly keep pigs as being good luck for me and soon I found myself once again embracing everything pig. It just came automatically and I am sure it had a lot to do with divine intervention and also the fact that we have arrived in the year of the pig. And it was that first pig that I felt inclined to order that made realize that it was a message from beyond because it was a red ceramic pig with wings.

Beautifully expressed poem and so relatable!
In fact, just in the morning, I was talking to my husband about, how quickly the days are passing away. It’s already 7th February!!
As we age, this feeling becomes more predominant.
Thanks for sharing another wonderful poem!
