New World

I stand on the edge of my sanity
Looking at my past
On the horizon of a new world
Hopefully the last

I can glimpse that life in another world
Without a mirror to see my face
To confirm, that nostalgia lingers
Even here, in outer-space

Were I to wish, I could go back
My wishes would, be all in vain
For the ones I loved are dead and gone
And in this place, I will remain

So goodbye sweet loves
World and family, I once knew
I can't go back to visit you there
But know that I'll, remember you

    oh, and of course, I really liked this poem! Btw, when you ask me now I am cranking out all my poems, keep in mind, at least half my poetry is not posted at Soup. From time to time, I am putting up those poems for contests. It makes me look more productive than I currently am!!

    CAleb, I hope you believe that in another life, you will see them again. I have to believe this will be true for myself. It's not even about the people so much as just that "nostalgia' of times that we cannot get back. THis was your first poem on soup I think. I'm glad I thought to come to see it. I will go through all your poems from the bottom up as I see them from time to time and that way hopefully can eventually say I have seen every single one!!
