In the stillness of the night
As I lay in my bed
A thousand thoughts of you,
Swimming firefly in my head.
Things I should have told you
I have left too late
For now, you make your journey
Beyond sleeps silent gate.
How clear the vision of your smiling face
Tattooed upon my memory
Shall never be erased.
Immortal in my thoughts
Forever you will stay
Tonight, a bright star
Dances on the Milky Way.
The Book of Life
Life’s like a rare book, slowly to be read
Each page your turn your fate is still ahead.
Past chapters you’ve sought through
Have not been in vain, just retrace
The text and knowledge you gain.
Memories of moments will come to mind
Some dark dismal storm clouds, reflections
They’re all fleeting pastimes stored in the mind
Mistakes that are made, corrected with time.
Sudden as a whirl wind drawing leaves to its path
You will find treasured memoirs of times in the past.
Cascading reminiscence of laughter and joy
Visions in youth as a girl, or a boy.
Pages you read through of earlier times
When you bubbled with innocence, wonder and rhyme.
These events sent to test you in the grand sea of time,
While you enter more pages and many more changes,
In that rare Book of Life.
As the pages grown old and yellow, you’ll find,
Life is enjoying the Passage of Time.
