Old Roads
I have walked old roads this day
that with the dawning dark
became ghosts of my past
and in a Sun's bright glare
were lost and gone forever
this has been my journey
a blink and centuries pass
within a single hour

I have walked old roads this day
on hard and bitter stones
seeking hungers deep and wild
in slowly passing eyes
where the father of shadows
spoke in whisperng darks
of a final path to solitude
and a lost redemptiom

I have walked old roads this day
to a future's cold hard dawn
to watch all our histories lie
in a single grain of sand
where the last chorus fading
echoes down the wind
and the last dreamer waits
for a single futile sign

Thomas you always pour your mind of emotions out like a flood that has been coming for such a long time. Your heart so full of past memories.

Sometimes that is all we have left. When we let go of the past we will find our future.Been in the same shoes. I was so lost for so many years.

 So glad your writing again ole friend 

 I have missed you and your poetry.Tell me did you ever get anything published?
