My Life. So Far...
I have lost my idle themes
In a winters night on high,
In a winters tale twas told to me
By trusting strangers that accost
Me for a pint of beer.
I have watched the starlit sky
For to kindle my hearts desire,
Some vision of immortal bliss.
I have sought for total peace,
For enthrallment of a crueler kind
That could waken my dull spirit.
I have counted my flaws, one by one
And yet have remained a happy man;
Although I have made mistakes
My pride is still unbroken.
Desires are nothing to me
And yet dreams are my greatest treasure.
Other tears are burning fiercely
On the brim of my thoughts
And other voices have spoken
In the reaches of my brain,
Till by some delusive trigger
Have I come forth with another illusion.
