Heart to heart
When all is said and done, I want to be able to look in the mirror and love the 
woman

that stars back at me.

The End
When all is said and done.
When the curtains close
and the actor walks home –
The end of yet another
day for him.
Or so it may seem
to you…
If only you knew –
you are my home.
The end of my day.

time
when we want time to walk 
it runs
when we want it to run
it walks
time is a minute
at a time
no rhyme or reason
holds its sway
but when all is said and done
there is still only 24 hours
in a day.

Humble Poet
Don't just let my writing blow you away
I am still God's jar of clay

God has given me a gift
Lives to hopefully uplift

Try to be humble
Beats having a fumble!

When all is said and done
God's the one who truly won!...

JOT & TITTLE
I had to trade another jot
I had to sell a tittle

I had to cuz they told me that
I had to give a little

I had to sit and wonder at
The setting of the sun

What giving just a little costs
When all is said and done

Premium Member Criminally Sane
I guess I once was a juvenile delinquent. Then I became an adult delinquent. Now I'm a middle age delinquent. Soon enough I'll be a senior citizen delinquent. When all is said and done and it is all over I'll just become a dead delinquent. Ha Ha....

The Road Home
Life requires balance and agility,
without each... we fail to negotiate 
the rough roads and sharp turns 
along its course. 
Highway speed is of no concern
because when all is said and done
everyone finds the same destination point...
the end of the road!...

Regret
When all the smoke has cleared on battles either lost or won,

the downed and damned and damaged tallied in the aftermath,

as ever, Guilt turns to Remorse when all is said and done

and leaves Regret to walk alone down consequences path.

Premium Member Empty Feelings

How sad that he's forgotten
All the lessons love has taught him

The money never mattered
Her poor heart is torn and shattered

It's amazing just to listen
To his lacking self rendition 

I guess when all is said and done
Empty feelings are all he's won....

Who is the Queen? When all is said and done. A nice old lady who wears nice hats And in life has had a decent run. Her servants do the weekly shopping. She watches Corrie when at home. And maybe like you she reads the Sun Whilst seated on the throne.

When All Is Said And Done
When all is said and done 
The curtains close on you 
When darkness overcomes 
You will be through 
It’s true 
I know 
I was there once 
Waiting in the depths 
I was there once 
Begging to be kept 
I was there once 
Wanting to be free 
I’ll be there someday 
Won’t you wait for me

The Price
We seek our fortune,
we seek our fame,
when we lose our perspective,
only we are to blame...

We seek our silver,
we seek our gold,
we'll throw away everything,
if our praises be told...

We soak in the glory,
we revel in all of the cheers,
when all is said and done,
we never get back all those years.

Silently screaming
Silently screaming.


At the end of the day all things end.
When all is said and done, we are merely men.
Nearly men never find their true love.
We are left so close, but never touched.
So far from being,
Always only ever seeing and dreaming,
While inside we remain…silently screaming.

Premium Member O Christmas Tree
'Tis that time again to bedeck the tree with decorations!

   Untangling the string of lights is one of my annual frustrations!

      Naughty words are said but when all is said and done, you'll,

         Happily declare that sans a Christmas tree it wouldn't be a Yule!

To Disagree
If we agree to disagree
Does that avoid a fight?
I do not see how that can be
If both of us are right.

At least, we both believe we are
So if that is the case,
We’d have to somehow drop the bar
Or someone loses face.

I guess when all is said and done
We’ll both still feel annoyed
That no one’s lost and no one’s won;
A truce is null and void.

Premium Member Cleaning and Dancing

Ok, you have some cleaning to do.
Put on the music and dance on through!
You may actually have a little fun.
When you can’t be outside enjoying the sun!
So clean and dance and carry on!
The chores will get done, like a clean cut lawn.
Then, when all is said and done and your beloved comes home,
The rest can be imagined in this poem! :)

Charlie's Cartoon Characters Curiously Careen And Crusade
We work on the Funny Farm
Charlie And I
Different Cartoon Characters everyday
Heckle and Jeckle, Droopy, Captain Caveman
Careening through the day like Homer Simpson
Curiously, where is he?
Oh, he’s around somewhere
Crusading for a better day
Because when all is said and done
We all deserve a Duff Beer at the end of the day...

What I want
I want a world 
Where kindness is held
To be the way it’s meant to be
And it is enough to be alive and free

Just to live your life 
Far from trouble and strife
I don’t want to recreate
The older times that some contemplate

Just for all to be in happiness
And find a laugh in everyday jest
I’m sure I’m not the only one
When all is said and done.

Final Breath
never followed a course
my life could have been worse

received sarcastic jabs
and rode plenty of cabs

called many names
and played some games

when all is said and done
and my life's almost gone

judge my actions
no distractions

my heart was always pure
though my faith wasn't sure

evil and good
my neighborhood

What's waiting after death?
I won't fear final breath...

This Doubting Self
So to win the ragged wreath
of limp affection
we beseech
and race until our feet are raw
to finish lines
of truth because
we tell ourselves this will reflect
our self esteem
to high respect
and yet when all is said and done
we find this race
cannot be won
For even at the starting line
you had yours
and I had mine
There was no race to run! At last~
this doubting self
is in the past....

Welcome to the Parade
Welcome to the parade
Where lost souls and memories
Come to gather 

Everyone wants to enter
And everyone wants to leave
But only the entrance is free

It’s all black and white and Technicolor
Pixels and polygons
Where the old collides with the new

Take a ride on regret
Have a bite of introspection
And be sure to take a picture

And when all is said and done
Pay up your exit fee
And have a safe trip home

Savoured
Waters splashed in steady flow   heated fast under throbbing glows   salted streams steam, about to blow   stiffend strokes are soon invoked   as a bubbling froth begins to show   vigorous excitement is counted down   as ever morsel has become unwound   and when all is said and done   it's softly limp before it's drained   mouths water as lasting tastes   deliciously remain

Imploding Decimation
When all is said and done
the dust begins to settle
and all the pieces standing
are forced back into mellow

The melancholic return
in oblivious absense
monotony abounds
and still nothing happens

A fercent felt desire
a yearning for some depth
Unsheathing of mine eyes
reveals there's nothing left

Inconsistent surging swells
of pent up cooperation
man made soul a super nova
an imploding decimation...
