To Wander


And slowly
I wander this world that I know
I find myself
Dreaming that one day I'll go
To a place
Where I can be free
And when I'm there
I'll finally be able to see

I wonder
What does this life mean to me
And as I sit here
I gaze out upon the sea
As the light glistens
Across the rolling waves
I think to myself
Just of all I have to praise

I have traveled the world
And seen so many wonders
I've seen mountains fall
And heard thunder scream

But now I feel life passing slowly
And I know what I must do
I must now leave this world
And travel
To the next plain
Where I will wander again
And find where I belong
So leave to you
These words of a life lived long

Just know that the world is beautiful
And every day is a precious gift
So live your life
And leave fear behind
For someday you to shall die

And we will meet again
For I promise my friend
That death is not the end
Life is just a passing trend

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
