In Poetry by NevilleLeave a Comment

He chased her once How he did All around the world He went for her, half mad She would be his girl But it didn’t turn out that way He lost in the end Someone else got her heart Disconsolate He fell into a sadness That feeling of dread For she was gone But he wanted her back Was there …

Time it won’t catch up with me I’ll just walk a little faster It’s for me to accept Time doesn’t stop Certainly not for me Yes, there’s inevitably But I’m not looking back Not trying to be Anything more Than a real man Seeking the real me The sober truth Is that we’re gonna leave But until then Time won’t …

What Is Life

In Poetry by NevilleLeave a Comment

Another Year Done

In Poetry by NevilleLeave a Comment

Another year done Another year gone Another year to come Ups and downs Grins and frowns Doing it and taking it in Losses and wins Friends made And to arrive in the bye and bye Sorrow over missing ones Loves gone away As life goes on As each day dawns As we await our fates I’m a better man in …
