A Memory In Your Mind...

Poem By Tom Maxwell

As I travel alone, for the rest of my day's,
One thought, I will hold on to, in every way,
Is why you had to leave,
So often we are confused, during our stay.

Your world, always seemed to glow so bright,
The life you lived, Striving to make everything right,
Now your memories, on a lonely night.

We learn, from this life, in many different ways,
Always knowing, nothing will forever stay,
Everyone is here, for a limited time,
Never leave a friendship, lost in a bind,
For the rest of your life, It may be a memory, in your mind.

We can not replace anyone, during our stay,
We all have unique qualities, that with us, will always stay,
Accept, and appreciate everyone,
Before you walk away.04/09/2006

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,

Why Are You Here?

How long could you keep others interested,
Discussing, hobbies, personal things you do,
Not those once a year, experiences,
The things you create, build, work on,
