Life

The life I seek is elusive
The one I lead, illusive
Smiles are far and few
Hours go by at the pew
Waiting, praying, hoping
While within I’m slowly wilting
Each day my dreams crumble
Time hasn’t an apology to mumble
Without care it ticks on
Marching like the war’s won
A voice tells me there’s time
But it’s not the heart, just wine

What’s gone, is gone, is gone
In the end we all walk alone
Sure, there are smiles along the way
Some kind words to hear and say
A few hands to hold
Even love, if you’re that bold
But it all ends in the end
We all have broken hearts to mend
But a few, a few escape this fate
Some early, some late
It’s a gift only a few get
If only we could all be so fortunate…
