After We Hear Are Last Sound

Poem By Tom Maxwell

This life will always bring us new adventures along the way,
The only thing we can count on, is that it will come to an end one day.

Answers and confusion, come and go all of the time,
Some will bring smiles, and others, tears from our mind.

People, places and goals, we seek during this life's race,
Often, we have to choose, which one's we will follow, at our own pace.

Often, we feel, we are doing good, and on the right trail,
Then we find ourselves, off to the side, hanging on to our life, by the rail.

As we travel through this life, we will all have experiences that will turn us around,
We will never know what will come next, until after we hear our last sound

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,
