When Life Has Rearranged Our Minds

When Life Has Rearranged Our Minds
When Life Has Rearranged Our Minds

Nestled down, hand in hand,
warm thoughts embrace the night,
and I wonder what will come,
what love or loss to succumb my hopes,
what torturous trap of freedom pleas
does future hold,
or blissful life in love’s delight
will mold my thoughts, to erudite
profusions of possibility,
a joy of such profundity,
I’ll surrender,
or perhaps my dreams
are pervading reality.

How do we ever know,
that soul that is so beguiling,
so right for our every breath,
will not at end be our death,
the bane of our existence,
the torturous pain of pains
that tears our life apart, or
like a summer breeze soothe our very soul,
swallow us whole
to deliver us to perfection,
the tenderness of ecstasy,
the contentment of a life
unrivaled.

Hope lives eternal,
but what I have found is the pain,
the finite edges of love,
eternal in its resounding bells,
yet in life, at end dispelled
to be found wanting,
as change drags souls away,
living in another day, without us,
and even blamed for the move,
never smooth in physical transition,
just accompanied by spite and the attrition
of propriety, so sorely missed
in endings.

So, nestled down, holding hands,
what lies behind that warm smile,
what surprise awaits,
in one, ten or twenty years from now,
when life has rearranged our minds?

    If only we could see what life will be in the future maybe a lot of uncertainty would be avoided. Guess one would just have to risk and go with the flow – or one could sit and wonder then miss out on love if past hurts and pain prevent that risk being taken. Remember to not judge what could be by what was. Very well penned verse, Tony. Expressive and emotive.

    Regardless of the situation you always seems to have the “eternal optimist” ending – that’s what keeps you going I believe. Beautiful piece

    Thanks Ralph, I guess if we didn’t have an optimistic mind what would be the point? Glad you enjoyed it.
