This poem was written for my mentor, a man I met at the age of 16 -- he was 13 years older than I, and is long gone from my life.

I remember when you said, "you gotta pay your dues child"

And I wondered how you knew

You who had always run so wild.

The days have come and gone, no one calls me 'child' anymore

You're not the wild rocker now

And I guess you could say we both know the score.

Please wander back my way; I've paid my dues and then some

Run against that same brick wall so many times my head beats like a drum.

And sometimes in the night, I dream of one special man.

Your voice is always with me

I tell myself I can't, but you know that I can

Go on despite the odds. You said, "It's tough, kid...real tough"

And you should know, you've seen it all

But you never told me when it's enough

Success is like a foggy swamp; you left me on the edge one day

I've stumbled to the middle and I'm trying hard to see the way.

It's so hard without a beacon...switch on your love so I may see

The one thing you never told me is that we need each other to be free.

Ooh, this is such a beautiful write, straight from the heart. I love this poem from the titel "Lost" to the very last line. You've captured my attention and drawn me into a write with feeling, love, triumph, wisdom an emotional roller coaster, also has a bit of a mystical feel. Enjoyed this my friend!
