Time finds me pensive
Bemoaning life's brevity
Engrossed in serious thought
Obsessed with themes of unfulfilled dreams

I drift in golden memory
Embracing passion's history
Dreaming of things and places I've loved
Envisioning faces of people I've loved

I'm always wondering . . . pondering
Imagining . . . surmising . . . fantasizing

Sometimes dreading the day's passage
Often excited about tomorrow's dawn
Eagerly welcoming wondrous occasions
Striving to weed my life span landscape

Thus, I sit silently
Appraising life's quality
Desirous of enriching my life time
Tenaciously clinging to my life line

Thanx for the journey Gwen. If we have no future, we can only cling to the past. This is well written, and gives us a reason to pause and think. I disagree with Regis tho. I have nothing but my childhood to fall back on, because my adolescence was stolen. But you have done very good Gwen.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constnatly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

A fascinating journey into your thoughts and emotions. I am sure all of us can relate. I admire you for allowing yourself to feel ambivalent and for exploring all facets of life with an open mind and an adventurous heart. Anyone who thinks they have all the answers is sadly mistaken. Anyway, who would want to? Good luck! 'Pea' <3

A clear philosophical poetic mind has delivered the picture of the ontological ideal of a "Life Span".

Always an enchanting learning experience is to visit Your Den, Poet.

Thank You posting "Life Span", and thank You for adding value to the pages of Poetry.

"Often excited about tomorrow's dawn

The above emotions and thoughts come naturally to a child; sadly, this is often lost as we become adults. Very nicely done, Gwen. Love and peace to you,

We all get feeling this way, now and long as it is only a loving and timely recall, that is good for our spirits, and helps us set our compass afresh in life...:)
The trick is always to be moving forward confidently and sanguinely in life at the same time...
There is so much waiting on us yet, still to be discovered and enjoyed immensely !'
Have faith in God...He knows what's in our hearts and souls on a minute to minute basis !
