Life wasted on wrong vices. Too many regrets.

Lonely man, lonely road.

On his back his guitar rode.

I see the years on his face.

I see the pain in his eyes.

I hear the words of his song.

I feel the music from that guitar.

Hands like leather.

His hair winters cold.

On his back his guitar rode.

Lifeís been hard.

Lifeís been grand.

Yet like the mountain he will not change.

Bottle in his left.

Sand in his right.

He canít let go, not for one night.

He canít move forward.

In his past the younger manís eyes.

Holds the world captive with his sound.

The whole world loved him.

The whole world cried.

He could not put down his bottle, but falling sand.

So in his dreams he still sees those lights.

Feels the music.

Tastes the smoke filled bar.

From your most recent poems you seem to be doing o.k. This was a memorable write and took all the pain away, and showed us you really wanted to turn around and go on a new path.

Images of pete seegar, run through me as I read this-nice piece

Very provocative prose. I'm hoping that regrets create meaningful turningpoints. Bless you. My best, Gloria
