A Little More Time

A Little More Time

 – if but to mark mine –





A little more time
To recall a mood
I’d left behind,
When early in life 
If but mark mine,
To allow for strife …

A little more time
To live with candour, 
Discover my other,
Whom I’d forsaken
In visions of grandeur…

A little more time
To shake free of talk
That life offers blindly, 
Overriding the clock…
 
A little more time 
To share a measure
Of neglected kindness, 
And taste the pleasure	
Of compassionateness…

A little more time
To recapture the scent 
Of evocative memories, 
With all of their follies
Life chose to be meant
If need be to mark mine!

“ Those Moods ” – a state of mind –

Listen to audio

Those Moods
      - a state of mind -
At times bemused,
To find thy mood
More so confused,
As cause to brood
Wouldst too define, 
As to misconstrue
A state of mind !
