DAY DREAMS

I’d like to write enough to use
Words dancing in my head,
With all the things I have to say –
said.

I’d like to have a million bucks,
And spend it as I thought,
With all the things I’ve wished to buy –
bought.

I wish that all delicious food
Would not increase my weight,
With all the things I like to eat –
ate.

I wish there was a tape somewhere
When my guitar’s re-strung,
With all the songs I love to sing –
sung.

I’d like to break old habits now,
Of writing-trends I’ve kept,
With all the missing hours of sleep –
slept.

If I could satisfy my dreams,
I hope I would not gloat,
With all the things I wish to write –
wrote.

If we met by chance

WOULD YOU REMEMBER ME

The woman you passed by today
You didn’t even know
Because her face wears wrinkles
And her hair is white as snow

Yet, your hair is just a fringe now
Around a balding pate
Your wrinkles hide behind a beard
And you’ve added lots of weight

You use a cane to get around
And your shuffle gait is slow
Your old physic has gone awry
Where did those young years go

I’m the girl you said you loved
When we were young and spry
But the cutie, as you called me then
Has also watched years fly

I know it was “way back then”
And we were not to be
But if we met some place by chance
Would you remember me
