Canít be less than I am


All dreams with no plans


An old man with faithless hope


Taking life all in vein


Only memories remain


Life sucks out here on the ropes


Regrets fuel the pain


Guilt fuels endless shame


Sins fingers wrapped round my throat


What was I thinking of?


When I gave up on love


Impossible now too to cope


If you know where I am


Please reach out your hand


Iím drowning canít stay afloat


Or best that I slip away


From lifeís bitter fray


Close my eyes, my heart, my hope


ÖÖ


Canít be less than I am


All dreams with no plans


An old man with faithless hope

Well done!
Where would us old fogies be without faithless hope?
You're not the lone ranger.
Thanks for sharing.

Reviewed by Sandie Angel 8/11/2005
If you know you have lived
then you have succeeded -

Not all dreams are guaranteed
to be granted
for dreams vary in demands
to become true

Dreams are just dreams
they require no plans

Your hope is your faith
and they require your efforts
and your confidence
to make them real.

- Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
