Without a Trace

How I need to vegetate
Not to care ‘bout being late
Nor about painting my face       
So I won’t be a disgrace

How I need to quiet lie
And let others bustle by
I must slow the hands of time
Clean away the filthy grime

Oh, how much I need to….BE
And to get in touch with ME
Not that person in control
But the one who has a soul

How I need to just be still
‘Fore I lie beneath some hill
I need to slow down the pace
And to hide without a trace.

    I hope you are being refreshed Eileen. In the mean time I will mine for diamonds among your older writes.

    Tim, visiting my older works shows something important to me. Thanks for taking the time to do that. I remember way back once posted that you'd catch up on my older works while on the train to work. ;) It's taken a while to fulfill that promise. Thanks for showing up. Hugs
