Pookey's Poems

Another Year


Today is my day for a brand new year
A look ahead to my new frontier
Everything appears to be uncertain
Like last year when I was hurt'in

My arms embrace the future ahead
Eyes not shut, but open instead
Excited like a kid on Christmas day
Waiting to unwrap the brand new day

Another year older another year passed

The lines on my face in all it's glory
Tells of my life's story
Lines from laughter, lines from tears
Lines from this past year

Another year older and what have I learned?

The true meaning of unconditional love
The human spirit that is so strong
Rebuilding, and rising above
Learning from the past, that I'm sure of

The path ahead is not straight or narrow
But I will lead my life
With the promise of tomorrow

    Learning from the wind and sun... (Report) Reply

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
