My Cup


Alone once again, in
this deafening silence I
can hardly stand.

Shadows of yesterday dance on
the wall. People I knew, places
I've been . Oh! How my heart
yearns for those days to be recalled.

The world was so new and my young
life was too.
Around the world I would go, new places
and people I would chance to know.

I spent time like it was just a thin dime.
I wasted it, gave it away, and lost it in
my young prime.

Now I wish I had capture time
in a bottle. Like a rare wine, I
would savor it, until I turned
old an refined.

But the truth is…
My time is all used up and
my vanity is all that's left
in my cup.

So, quietly I sit, watching shadows
dancing on the wall. Silently wondering
when Gabriel will call.

Things are not quite that bad. It's two in the morning and I'm feeling
melancholy....smile
