Winding Down When We Worry

Why worry ? Some people say.

Don't you know,

tomorrow is another day.

My beating heart is fluttering away.

I see you there

standing in my way.

Off you go

I shan't ask you to stay.

I have no care

you'll hear me say.

My head says go away,

feelings say stay.

You leave me today

I sigh in care.

I cannot bare

the empty space

I'll be there

you'll be replaced.

Hope was when

you used to care

now no hope and

neither care!

I wonder then

of things to share

of where we went,

when you were there.

I may relent,

If weakness

in it's shallow

coat, mistakes

my strength,

and then will gloat.

my worry then

I will hide away

you never again

will say

to me

you are the

one I blame !

Sometimes we worry because there are many tomorrows, and we do not know how to cope.

I do like a happy ending -- and it is happy when we decide we will take no more. : )

Now make up your mind maxeen . Your bloke loves yo8ur dogs and not you. Is that what you want to convey? (lol)

Reading through your responses to comments here I am not sure if it was a poem from the air or it has anything to do with you. An explanation is called for :) Suffice it to say the poem has substance.

Those are some of the best, when they just hit you.

No ! Nothing personal there. As you said "from the air" Not the slightest idea why, or where, it was from..Nice that you read it ..
