LOST

Posted on 11th June, 2018

LOST

 

Lost in a world of despair

Lost in a world without care

Lost to the god up above

Lost to the children you love

Lost in your quiet mind

Lost in a world that is blind

Lost to your father and mother

Lost to your sister and brother

Lost in your thoughts through and through

Lost to the people you knew

Lost are your skills and your art

Lost is your soul and your heart

Lost what your lifes all about

Lost is your drive and your clout

Lost are your goals and your dreams

Lost is forever it seems

But one thing is not lost for sure

Hope stays forever and more

Hope destroys lost every day

Hope keeps us feeling okay

Hope remains strong in our hearts

That one day with lost you will part

That one day lost is no longer

And hope is forever the stronger

On lost you will shut the door

And lost will be never no more

Open your heart let hope in

Make sure that lost does not win

THE SHIP

 

What is dying

I am standing on the seashore, 

a ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.

She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her till at last she fades on the horizon

and someone at my side says:

"she is gone"

Gone!

Where

Gone from my sight that is all.

She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.

The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her, 

and just at that moment when someone by my side says,

"she is gone"

there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up the glad shout:

"There she comes!"

and that is dying.
