“ Memory Ah Memory ” ~ could you not bide ~

 

Memory ah memory

Where did you go,

Must you now hide

To forsake me so,

Or could you not bide

Memory ah memory,

That we end side by side!

 

“ While I’m Alive ” ~ in that embrace ~


Before I reach

That lonely place,

Let me reside

While I’m alive,

Close by her side

In that embrace

Of each day’s best,

Which lets me hear

That joyous fest

Of her voice near,

Alluding to be clear

Love will survive,

Until I am no longer!

“ This Side Of Fair ” ~ a honourable place ~

 

 

I’ve need to know

This side of fair

If I’ve been so,

With whom

I’ve shared,

Varied aspects 

Of a life dared…

 

Imperfect choices 

With answers few,

Wants judge fair

Existent struggles,

Eliciting despair…

 

I want to know

Without proviso

For weighing so,       

Accountability

I’ve sided just,

And beyond shades

Of laudable dust

For honourable place,

This side of fair!
