Time and Tide

Think most of you know my wife is extremely ill.  This poem is a bit serious - a more light hearted one to follow (if you don't laugh, you.....)


                TIME AND TIDE.


Half a century since we bought our house,

Which was standing all forlorn;

Loves young dreamers came along,

And a happy home re-born.


Nature blessed us with two fine boys,

And our wishes all came true;

Both lovingly raised to man-hood,

Then to seek out pastures new.


Darby and Joan left in residence,

Bond even stronger now;

Golden years spent together,

Three decades did God allow.


The good lady is in a nursing home,

It seems a bell will toll;

Sans mother and her children,

The old house has lost its soul.


What was once a place of laughter,

Sadly now a place to mourn;

But new young dreamers will come along,

And a happy home re-born.


This is not a tale of sadness,.

It's the world since time began;

Dear reader, heed the old advice,

Gather rose-buds while you can.




Thank you for reading.  Happy days
