Poetic Dan

Here & now For a better finale



Here and now once looked so far away, that somehow it can still feel like yesterday

Waiting for the train and the most precious 72 hours

To try and give all my love in just a part time showers

Still grateful for marriage that started it off but two homes were better than one that didn't get along

The reason I wrote poetry to fulfil something that wasn't there, find strength to keep going and not disappear

Many storms have been ridden with doors opened and closed, yet here I am on a peak of a mountain feeling unexposed.

My tears run down the valley and now meadows can be felt for miles, in a decade I got divorce then had another child

This has become a dream within a dream one I truly forgot to be, walking hand in hand with harmony.

I guess it is all about the journey, luckily it ain't over for me but I'd like to write a better finale

        Lol I'm actually finding it hard to still not cry over those lines....I guess because its easier to write than feel.

        Thank you as ever for the company my friend

        Dearest Dan,

        This is so beautiful and so relatable honest and full of positivity.

        I love these lines, I could have easily been hearing them in a song

        Still grateful for marriage that started it off but two homes were better than one that didn't get along

          I'm sure you'll find them in one or two songs but they belong to anyone that lives through this.

          Thank you so much for joining me on this journey and seeing where I've come from.

          'To try and give my love in part time showers.' Words of genius that I can relate too. In fact the whole poem is relatable Dan. Brilliant.

            Would this be a birthday visit? If so many happy returns but also new year to you my friend.

            That little line did actually stop for a while and wanted more to say but just like the time I didn't get. I have to let it go!

            Lol
            Thanks for the inspiration

            • Saxon Crow

              No it's not mmy birthday. Unless I was American! Happy New year to you too buddy.

              A better finale is what we all need. Well expressed!

              • Poetic Dan

                May we go out louder and proudest than we have even been.
                Thank you my friend

                Some sadness but so positive words now. Beautiful.

                  Thank you for your time and kind words.


                  It's good to share we can over come sadness

                  Wonderful Dan, the finale of your life is going to be so very wonderful, it is so very good at the moment though, appreciate every moment of it.

                    One can only keep trying and with the support you've given no wonder I can feel like I'm flying....

                    Thank you my friend

                    "Here and now once looked so far away" . From your write I pick lessons from a life I haven't even lived. This is a powerful piece, PD. So much real life woven into it, with its ups and downs. This is definitely a favorite for me. Thank you sir.

                    • Poetic Dan

                      Wow.. thank you my friend is hard not to sometimes see this as dribble but often can be healing and receive words like yours.

                      Truly appreciated
