I Wonder

Sometimes, I sit there
and wonder. I think
as blue birds sing.
I get lost in thought
as church bells ring.
I drift away. I wonder
about things that
can’t be changed.
I wonder if I ever
broke out the cage.
I wonder about
the past. I remember
keeping track.
I wonder as rain
dances with thunder.
Sometimes, I sit there
and wonder. I forget
where I am. I fade
away before I
remember what
I was going to say.
Sometimes, I wonder.
Still. Silent. Content.
Sometimes, I wonder
where the time went.

Spare Change

Can you spare some change?

Can you buy common sense?

If you can, please do?

You can learn something new.

You can help and I can too.

We can change the way

We feel and what we say.

We can change. There is time.

We can spare some change.

We can change. We can be

different in every way.

Strange-R

I walk past you and forget the past

because what we had didn’t last-

I do not know you anymore;

you have become a stranger.

The feelings I feel do not stay;

the energy we had went away.

I have become strange; Everything is strange.

Has it always been this way? What has changed?

I have seen you before, but I cannot recall

because I do not remember you at all.

You have grown into a stranger;

The life I live is becoming stranger

I say hi to you, the person I knew

Because you’re looking oh so blue.

We stare at each other for a moment

As I wonder where the time went.

You say hi back and we both crack smiles

Before I walk another 100 miles.
