Poetry from within

Our Journey

Some talk of love between two folk

Like mist from silky streams

That gathers in the hollow

like gently flowing dreams

Some others don’t quite see it

They don’t have the same

They don’t see what’s special

And find it all quite lame

And then there’s me and you My Girl

We’ve been so long together

We’ve crossed uncharted waters

And faced all sorts of weather

And on our journey through the years

We’ve had our ups and downs

But to this day I share with you

Never did we drown

We weathered out the storms we faced

Some taken in our stride

Other storms near killed us

But "together" we survived

During this our journey

We took two more on board

Two fine and striking ship mates

Equally adored

Both our shining lights of joy

Our buttons strain with pride

They make their way across their seas

They’ve sailed upon their tide

We watch them sail beyond our sight

And slowly evening falls

Then gently in the distance

Our own time quietly calls

We sit, we chat, we laugh at things

We’re just us two again

We talk of all the times we've had

til two or three AM

But as I close this poem

Please hear what I now say

Never take for granted

The gift of life each day

For if like me you find her

The girl who you adore

You’ll want to live forever

In her arms her for evermore

If one day you look for me

and I too can't be found

fear not for I'll be with her

together safe and sound

For "My Girl"
