I awoke this morning with a spirit of bitter lonilness upon me.
It was a chill of my heart I could not explain.
It was a reality check that came upon me.
A realization that the joys of my youth would never be recaptured again.
I would not know the beauty of a kiss in youthful passion again.
That feeling of oneness with another that binds us to happiness.
Is it the creeping years that makes me feel such this day.
Hard as I try to reach back to other times when I felt such
I come up with hollow hands.
Let this day pass quickly.
I am afraid there will many more like this.
Still I pray and hope
sparks of the past
will return again tomorrow
to give me another chance at happiness.
