Lost Hope

Written by: William J. Jr. Atfield

Lost Hope !

Walking hand in hand, with beautiful Dreams, 
towards moments, never to be realized, it seems.

In a state of reverie, a trance ?
With your essence, I would love to dance
the rest of my life away.
With your soul, to spend each and every day! 

Not to be !, that is what you deem,
as I walk hand in hand with that Dream.

Seventy – a rocking chair and stool ?
Is this all that remains for an old fool ?, 
Who thought he was once so cool.
Now, only a reflection in some stagnant pool.

Life is cruel !, it is mean !
Looking back, what has it been ?

LIFE !
