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


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)
