Migration

I owned it.
As it dawned on me.
Hopelessness!
Sudden realization, of a deed.

Long time acoming - It was.

Awhile lingered - On its way.
Yet, inevitably approached.
Unkind fate.
Doom! I was wedded to.

Why resist its call?
Thus extend, my agony.
Waiting, expecting - Fearing!
To fall - Ever and again.

Why not cease?

Surrender.
Meet my fate.
Head-on charge.
Into thee, Oblivion.

Why do you linger on?
Unwanted hope.
Insidious friend!

Please, let me go.
Fall into abyss.
Find peace, at last!

To what end? Benefit.
Will this teeter - Tooter.
On the brink of darkness bring.
Ever deeper, tempting its call.

So I wail, resist it.
Believe on us - Love!
Doubt - My very ability.
To see, touch you again.

Hear thy breath.
Beating, of hearts.
Brought together.
Just once more.

These measures, of life.
Once belonged.
Sang with us.
Now paralyzed.

Forgotten linger.
For days, weeks, months.
Years, on end.
Continued.

With nothing, but a memory.
Love, wishes moved.
Our futures pinned.
Upon a wall.

Held together, by an ideal.
Just a picture, for two.
Of me - And, of you.
Which I kept, held onto.

Through it all.
Wondered why?
Must we meet.
Love! Wish!

Uselessly bleed.

For all we know - I appear.
A wisp, fading and playing.
Shifting, as reflection - I am.
On a pool of mist.

A mirage, of a shadow.
In a dream, that is....

I Wrote My Last Romantic Love Poem A Long Time Ago

I wrote my last romantic love poem a long time ago-
Now I write quieter poems
Poems of the pleasure of the old-
A walk in the morning
A sudden turn of sunlight on a cold cold day
A small kindness I may do
Or someone may do for me
Poems of love for my family
And of sadness at the sickness of my friends
Quiet poems
That do not know the wildness of passion
The bitterness of love disappointed
The up and down motions
Of when she does and when she doesn’t
And all her yeses and nos-
I write quiet poems
And I live happily in them
And I sometimes think with sadness
Of the great passion there was once-
But I am old now
And happy and quiet in small things
Grandchildren, among the best of them.

I Have Gone Long, Long Time

I have gone long, long time
Not knowing where to find you-
Peace was never meant for me,
Only heartache and tears-

I have gone long, long time
Without you, darling,
Losing hope that we'll ever
Be together,
But I walked alone and stayed
The course-

I have gone long, long time
Thinking of you, knowing
It was you who would be
There in the end-

The light that would lead me
Back home.

I have gone long, long time
Loving you and missing you,
Knowing well that the path
Would be winding and filled
With pain.

I have gone long, long time
Through the rivers of solitude,
Through the nights of despair,
Through the crowds of anonymity-

Just to hear your voice crystal clear,
Just to touch your lips and feel
The warmth of your hands,
Embracing me.

I have gone long, long time
Through the hills of pain
And the deserts of banality,
Through the corridors filled
With empty laughter and ignorance.

I have gone long, long time
Just to tell you I love you, darling.

I Want To Know You For A Long Time

F-ing short the loving lasts
I cant mix the future with the past
Can I stay close to you
I wanna stay close to you
Youve got yours and Ive got mine
And what we have in so hard to define
Just take a look at your life line
Youve got a lot to shine
Lets say baby,
I wanna know you for a long long time
Ooh baby
I wanna know you for a long long time
Oh darling, lady friend
Well see each other when its time to show
Just for a minute or for a year
But then again, dont you and I know
A time between our time together
It doesnt exist, it grows old forever
Just take a look at your life line
Ob baby, youve got a lot to shine
I know it baby,
I wanna know you for a long long time
Ob and baby,
I wanna know you for a long long time
I wanna know baby, I wanna know baby
Oh youve got a lot to live girl
So I wanna know you for a long long time
I wanna know, I wanna know,
I wanna know baby
So much to live for girl,
So much to live for girl
So I wanna know you baby
Wanna know you for a long long time.
I wanna know, wanna know ...
(etc. and fade)

A Long Long Long Time Ago

Yesterday arrived too quickly
Caught me right off guard
My defence moved in too slowly
Missed it by a yard
Id just settled down
With a bottle of gin
So I moved on to whiskey
And it hit me again
Memories were raining punches
Down on my head
Knocked me into the past so quickly
They almost raised the dead
So I drank some more booze
And it helped me to sleep
Where I dreamed of my youth
And the secrets I keep
Oh history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place
And we have a good time
But the memories
She sometimes brings with her
Get out of line
Theyre out of line
Show me things I dont want to see
(wanna see, wanna see, wanne see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(used to go, used to go)
A long long time ago
When I woke I remembered nothing
Suppose thats just as well
And although my head was aching
I could hear a bell
So I put on some clothes
And I reached my front door
When I pulled it wide open
She joined me once more
Oh history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place
And we have a good time
But the memories
She sometimes brings with her
Get out of line
Theyre out of line
Show me things I dont want to see
(wanna see, wanna see, wanna see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(used to go, used to go)
A long long time ago
A long long time ago

It's been such a long time
But I think I should be goin', yeah
Cause time doesn't wait for me, but it keeps on rollin'
So Sail on, on a distant highway
Well I've got to keep on chasin' a dream
But I've gotta be on my way
Well I guess there is nothing left to say.
Well I'm takin' my time, I'm just movin' along
You'll forget about me after I've been gone
And I take what I find, I don't want no more
It's just outside of your front door.
It's been such a long time, It's been such a long time. Yeah
**Free Ride**
The mountain is high, now the valley is low.
And if you are confused on which way to go.
So Rascal Flatts is here to lend you my hand
And lead you into the Promise Land.

After A Long Time Separationn

I want to go home
to fix my mama's broken chair.

I want to go home
to play with my little darling.

I want to go home
after a long time separation
from my two beloved.

It Took Me A Long Time

it took me a very
long time
to realize that i

love you, and now that
my words are
dressed on their
Sunday's best

to let you know
what was unsaid before

the door of your church
is already closed

But Even Ashes Are Cried Over, Sometimes Even For A Long Time

Life is amazing
in that
it makes us forget....
but even ashes
are sometimes
cried over...

sometimes
even for
a very long
time

tell me more
the name
of that ash?

for whom shall
you grieve?

for whom
you have loved?

for whom
you have died?

for whom
you have lived again....

A Long Time From Now

I make no excuses
for the love I have for my wife.
She is the nearest thing to heaven
that I have in my life.
I dread to think of the time
when she will no longer be there,
and wonder if I will be able to cope
with the longing and despair.
Hopefully it will be
a long, long time from now.

The Boy who Sees His Dark Face After a Long Time

A market place where nearby
The old Railway station
Under the hot Sun,
The shoeshine boy
Not yet ten
With his holey satchel
Who shines the old retired
Bachelor Station Master's shoes
And he sees on the toe his dark face
After a long time since the day
Broke the mirror
And kicked his Mom away
By the drunkard father!


(To the Brazilian authoress Carolina Maria de Jesus
for her diary 'Child of Darkness'.)

A Long Time Ago

we were children splashing water
on the river
our dialogues are nothing but laughter
we put no blame
on anybody

the wind our allies and the sun our god
the moon our mother
the caves our secret homes
the sea our ancestors
the land our father

that was long time ago
now we have different names
and we made them our enemies

we shall miss those times
we sit here gritting our teeth
we sit here
on such loud noise
we wait for the promised destruction.

It Took a Long Time

Me...
I come first.
It took a long time,
For me to thirst for life like that.

For me to realize,
A happiness I wanted...
Was not going to be delivered,
Wrapped in a package.
As a surprise to be gifted...
Off of anyone's back.

And any happiness I would experience...
I had to supply it!
While listening to everyone else,
Say they've been denied...
After doing the trial and error bit.
To be left alone to cry!

And I'm not one to sit and sympathize.

Long Time

Lasting for a long time, our guesses are true,
The miscellaneous questions are asked
As he jolts us in our speech and uncovers
A new contemplation, a council needed.
There may be cracks in the wall, fining and suing,
But the job surges and sucks, serving and deluding
For the people to be.
This lasts for a long time, an awe is expected
When lights are out, when we believe in this poem.
To shoot a target called soft and cute is enormous task
But the speech may take you, may take you away.

A Long Time, A Long Way To Go

Its a long time and a long way to go
What was once mine isnt mine anymore
All my fears you would not find me
All behind me
Its a long way and a long time to come
When our hearts stray and the troubles begun
Ill forget it if you make me
Please just take me if you will
I know that if you will
Nothing you can say could block my way
Nothing you can do to make me not want you
And love you for a long time
Its a long time and a long way to go
But in my mind there is one thing I know
For as long as were together
Love forever

Never Is Such A Long Time

The encounter was so brief.
It's as if some theif
came in and stole it away
and never let it stay.
One year became a lifetime.
Two lives became like one.
There's not a day that will ever pass
and never a night to come
when the lonely ache will leave me
and let me just succumb
to a peaceful existance without you,
one where I'm not numb.

Time now moves so slowly
and my heart beats slower too.
It's like it's forgotten how to race
like it did from the sight of you.
Why do they say 'Time heals all wounds? '
My wound will last forever.
How will I feel like living again?
My mind just answers never.
And never is such a long time,
longer than it should ever be.

Never Is A Long Time

You build it up and tear it down, theres no reason to follow you. you left the song without a sound, you left the story I made for you. softly angels bow and cry in the stillness of the night.
Never is a long time - goodbye. no answers for the asking. its a long time - goodbye. no mercy for the aching. its a long time - oh I see no light on the forsaken. never is a long time - goodb
Ets spend the night when this dream has come to an end.
Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry, and yes, Ive cried over you. youve left me blind in paradise. youve left me hungering for the touch of you. snow white angels run and hide in the black
Of the night.
Never is a long time...

A Long Long Time Ago

a long long time ago
i agree with you
is a long long time ago
things perish
and those fragile like porcelain
shatter into negligible pieces
and on the ground
everything may cover and conceal
like the grass
or the dust or even a heap of leaves
and i
on this day of our meeting may also pretend
that those of the past
are of the past
and shall no more arise and be ghosts that shall
haunt me
but no, you are face to face with me and we do not mention
the word about it
yet the lines of our thoughts show
on the eyebrows
and they speak about the pain
the broken piece
staying like a thorn, a fish bone,
it is still refusing to leave
and you are scratching it
wanting for cure

Long Time Coming

Long time coming
But no one seen it coming
Long gone then
And your heart is still running
Now you're thinking bout the times
And the things you should've done
Well you might as well forget it
In the end you have won
Long-gone letters
Well it makes you feel better
Now you spend your days calm
But you spend the night shattered
It's a long time now
To be left in no doubt
It's a long time change
Do you still feel the same?
And you just can't shake that mood
Cause she's poisoned all your food
Now you're bogged down in those blues
And you just can't shake them loose
It's a long time coming
It's a long time now
To be left in no doubt
It's a long time change
Do you still feel the same?
Long time coming
