No Dark Shadows

Time rolls round too fast for me these days,

it feels like a hurricane though once just a breeze

there are days when that is a blessing to be sure, 

when pain dominates and I just want to slam close the door

but then another comes when the sky returns to bright blue

and I get to thinking there is still so much yet to do…  


That's when I get busy and the urgency starts to rise

with my mind in top gear I may yet surprise

myself among others as I get much more done

compared to those times when I could not face the sun…

Yes there will always be good days to follow the bad,

so whenever you feel low don't forget that the sad

will give way to the warmer days when storms have all passed,

and our moods brighten when there are no dark shadows cast…

I find the same thing since retiring, Dave - lethargic days and energetic days, but hey ho, that's life. Good poem x

Thanks Daniel, I appreciate your comments kind sir. :)

I recognise that express train syndrome - only just enough time to get our backs to the wall of that tunnel...

We may never know how many folk that we pass in the street are a little overwhelmed inside. ATB Dave

Hi Dave
Lovely work here. It has a great inner strength to it and can show to anyone who reads it that there is always light at the end of a tunnel. (Although from once or twice in my own life I have found it is an express train coming the other way);)

On a serious note it gives the reader a strength and calming influence that there will be better times. I know you will understand what I mean as I am finding the words hard to come by.
