Soon Enough

Soon enough my days will be drear
Soon enough death will hover near
Soon enough joy will bow to fear
Soon enough the unwanted tear

Don’t begrudge me these happy days
When all is right, heart full praise
When I dance in euphoric craze
When path seems clear and not a maze

Soon enough happy eyes will weep
Soon enough dread will round me creep
Soon enough bile in me will seep
Soon enough I’ll sink in too deep

For now please let me dance and sing
Let me soar high on eagle wing
Let love songs joy to my heart bring
Let sweet dreams sooth this awful sting

Soon enough pain will close the door
Soon enough eyes will smile no more
Soon enough I'll ask what life's for
Soon enough pain will be in store

Please let me love…laugh… sing…and dance
Soon enough, dear, I’ll lose this chance.

    "Today" is an unwrapped "tomorrow". Nobody is worth taking that gift from us. Let it shine.

    Honestly, stop listening to people. I used to be the same way. More people will wonder about you when your smile is grand. I get the same reaction when I'm goofing around, etc. I stopped listening to people and their strange ways some time ago. Just embrace the joy! People could use a lesson or two in that.

    Thanks, dear Drake. When I'm down...people tell me to perk up, and when I'm euphoric, they tell me to calm down..... :( I can't win! I just want people to know that when I'm so bubbly and happy and just full of life, they should let me ride that out, because in the down times...I can hardly get out of bed. So...let me live!!!! :) Your post is lovely. Hugs...Drake!

    For me I tend to stay more to the high side of middle. I am very fortunate in that respect. My dad and grandmother vacillated between the highs and lows. Mind you I may never experience the euphoric highs but I imagine that must make the lows that much more pronounced. I do wonder what it would be to write ay either of those extreams.

    Richard....you don't need to wonder....you can read my work. Surely, you have seen that here? High side of middle...that must be nice. In defense of myself....those exquisite highs....oh dear oh dear....nothing...nothing like it. I can just drink in the whole world and just fly and be free....happy and unbound....the real me.

    Ecclesiastes...I've written my own version of that...I think the poem is A Time for Everything. Give it a read if you have the time and the inclination. Thanks for stopping by....
