Turning Around

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


Every day it seems,
the world is turning around,
faster and faster -
spinning out of control.'
The seasons change,
the days flow by,
the clock does not stop
and often I wonder why.
Turning around,
I see the autumn colors,
the river swiftly flowing,
before the winter chains it
and it will wait in frozen splendor-
for spring to free it.
Turning around,
I remember our days together,
hand in hand through the seasons,
together just you and I.
Time went too swiftly
and I lost you along the way,
but now my memories.
keep me remembering,
the days that were so special,
the days when our love was real.
Now as another winter,
is going to knock at my door.
I long to hold your warm hand in mine,
but still turning around -
I see your bright smile
and shining blue eyes before me.
I know that as things,
in this world keep spinning,
there is still life to enjoy
and someday turning around -
I'll see you on the path to eternity.
