“Changing Skies”

Throughout all my thoughts I see...broken memories…cascaded with the signs of no tomorrows.

Binding me and blinding me, led without a single plea...to the Bridge of Un-repented Sorrows.

Why was this the case?
A slap across my face?...I didn't realize I was your clown.
Now I sit disgraced...purposely mis-placed...just a mere court jester with a frown.

I knew that I could make you laugh beneath this cold coarse smile.
Never knowing you would leave in just a little while.

I tired my best to make you soar above your woeful dreams.
Now all I have in knowing is alone I will remain it seems.

I laugh, I cry and wonder why, is all of this in vain?
All I wanted was your love and not un-dying pain.
The heart I have is broke in two and now there’s nothing more to say.
Except my angel in all my dreams, I wish you hadn’t gone away.

Our life is gone and so the dreams, but tomorrow will not wait.
It says that if Love comes my way…do not hesitate.

I sit and watch the changing skies with memories set in deep eyes.
I watch young lovers mingle with delight.
I wonder if they really know that Love will show them where to go.
But only if they Love with all their might.

But please, do not feel sad for me and leave me with your pity.
I would not do the same with you, you see?
My angel is not far from me.
She sits atop my Christmas tree, and yes…hope brings us all… brighter tomorrows.
