Bygones

A longing churns within my soul
 A hunger unfulfilled
I smash the crystal hourglass
The sands of time are spilled

I dip my toes into the sand 
My eyes begin to burn
I wipe a hot escaping tear
As memories return

I try to drag them back with me
Into the here and now
But they embody youthfulness
And I’ve forgotten how

I used to measure happiness
By counting every kiss
Collecting pictures in my mind
For such a time as this

But as my thoughts seek treasure deep
Within the mounting sand
My soul is busy stringing pearls
Unearthed by Wisdom’s hand

    I come back to this poem and comment because this is another one of your written beauties. There is so much to say in the world of poetry but what you are revealing is a true blessing for others to ponder and use as inspiration and motivation. There are a lot of people that are members but there are a lot of people that aren't registerd that come through daily and get a good read. And if they read yours they'll certainly get a great read. You have a well developed gift that is a tool to do good.

    I'm a nostalgia freak at times and we tend to look back and see only the good, forgetting the hardships. I liked this poem. Vince
