Goldfinch60

A Good Day.



The day was over,

Into bed I slid

And just lay there,

Thinking,

Thinking about my day.

 

A feeling of peace came over me

As I lay there gently breathing,

Awaiting sleep to come.

 

As I drifted into my dreams

I realised,

That today

Had been a good day.

    Good write Gold.
    Ain't no good day in 1066, when I turned up. It would have been good, if I had not arrived! lol

      Thanks Orchi.

      That it would Orchi, that it would.

        I caught the No.7 bus to Hastings that day. Or did I ride me horse there?! Hi ho, Silver. Was I the Lone Ranger's brother?

        Yes - they do happen. those days are what make life special.
        A polished little gem of a day and a poem of similar quality, Andy.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Dave, yes they do happen and hopefully there will be many more to come.

          lol, its a rare trait to be so in touch with one's youthful innocence, after the winds of time have had a good go at dimming all that naïve hope from our horizons.. thank you!
          for reminding us, that yes life was truly that simple: once

          • Goldfinch60

            Are these words for this Poem Mek or for another one?

                  Love it Andy! At my age, every day I wake up and realize I am still here, is a good day!

                    If you can climb the stairs to bed, then its been a good day, you survived. If you can descend the stairs without injury the following morning, its been a good night.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      So true d a, so today will be a good day, I managed to get down the stairs, out some music on and got the PC to work.
