Trying to Find My Way

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Long ago and far away,

like somewhere beyond the rainbow,

when life was so fine -

a gentler and simpler time.

So many days have flown,

I now look at what I own,

my love and my home

and often when I gaze into the mirror,

knowing that the years of love,

have now gone,

but they’ve left behind –

so many shining memories.

So to ease my mind,

I need to step back in time,

for no matter what –

I will never forget that once you were mine.

So I’d like to find my way,

to fly back to those days -

just for a moment more.

To contact with the child in me,

to know how grand life can be,

if you keep your heart light,

delight in all this world has to offer

live as if you’re marching in a parade,

tooting your own horn -

most every day.

Smile just as warm as the sun,

remember all the fun

and it makes me so glad,

that at the end of each day,

I can find my way -

back to the me that once was.

The me when things meant so much more,

than they do now

and once again I’m a child,

having found my way back -

to my special yesterdays.

A child dancing in the rain,

flying with the wind,

being all that I can be -

being simply me.
