Hope Gone

Upon thy pillow, I wearily hope for youth’s restful nights I once loved to spend in towering dreams. Images past behind closed eyes - romantic plans and lofty goals. Naïve thoughts turn to aged days of loss, again taunting me.

So lovely and yet so sad! Somehow I relate to these words, too, now that age is no longer a mirage on the horizon!! But hope must never be left to droop and wither...there are still days ahead! Congrats on a much deserved win, Rhonda! #7 Have a nice weekend. // paul

I really like how you did yours, Rhonda. I ought to try one. The sad ones seem more interesting to me!! Guess because I understand this one so well.
