Moments I felt high. Err... I'd be the one on the left, both feet in the air.

Moments I felt high. Err… I’d be the one on the left, both feet in the air.

This is all I am taking with me

Memories of euphoria fade faster than the actual moments
Songs of wondrous events soon become bland cackles
Sometimes my strengths don’t weigh a gram
Sometimes my word prowess can’t buy anyone a smile

This is all I am taking with me

Sun MAY rise tomorrow in this part of the world
I MAY find another soul to share thoughts with
I MAY enjoy another wonder tonight
This ‘high’ moment of writing MAY linger

None MAY remain with me

Sift me through good and bad times
No part of me remains there
No memories or scars
I just am, with all I am

All I have is this

I only change within
I only change from within
A tear, a hum, a hope, and a faith
Are all I am taking with me

And all that’s essential to my being



  1. Simply beautiful Doc, I have tears of joy. You really do understand this very moment, you’ve captured eternity with a blessed heart. Memories will fade but the love anchors this ever present moment between you and me.
    Thanks for sharing a lovely moment, poetry is powerful that way, and so delicately floral. (Fantastic photo) Friendship is an awesome high, I can totally relate to that as the best feeling in the world. Wow what an awesome share, I love it! ♥

    your words always make me smile Doc! And I think you were ‘high’ in that picture! lol great shot, to the photographer!!! really shows us the real you! 🙂

  3. I have to say Doc, it is always a pleasure to hear your voice. There is always something worth hearing here. Let’s dance through a life of “may”‘s and “maybe”‘s, but if so, let’s dance for all it’s worth.

  4. Love this! You know me though…ill be waiting for that cynical and dark piece lol

  5. Such a beautiful poem. And great pic, BTW. 🙂

Even the most absurd thoughts can't ruffle this Enchanted Writer. Spill, please...
