To Catch My Dreams

I’ll hang a dream catcher to catch my dreams

Won’t let them fly away to another world unseen

Should tethered them firmly inside my head

To keep them for years for eternity ahead

Won’t ever let my dreams to fade, and go away

To empty air, and dust untread

Bright, and glimmering giving rays full of hope

That maybe some day they will come true instead

The Test of Time

The love you bore me is no longer there

Anguish, abandonment, I can’t bear

I thought of it as resilient withstanding time, and space

What I didn’t know

It would fail the test for grace

It wasn’t the forever kind

The one wish I had in mind

Despair hits me from behind

Where did I go wrong

Still trying to understand

Is it me, or is it you

(Sheen, June 2021)

Identical

I don’t want to see you

The smile is not there

Replaced with worry lines

You look defeated

With shoulders sagging at times

I don’t want to see you

My identical image in the mirror

It’s best I forget you

Or I’ll deem myself a failure

Mystery

Life is a mystery from cradle to grave

What lies ahead you never know

Life in the womb, then life outside

Step by step it unfolds you know

Some on the right path, some on the wrong

Life follows an unknown ebb, and flow

Getting through it is a struggle alright

But life is a gift on us bestow

(Sheen-November2017)
