I’ve Always Dreamed…

[ 1 ] April 24, 2008

This is by far, in my opinion, the best poem I’ve written in a long time. It reminds me of another one that I’ve written, but I just can’t remember it right now.

“I’ve Always Dreamed”
March 28th, 2008

It’s always been my dream
To be somebody
I don’t need to be famous
I just want someone to think I did something
“Oh yeah, he did this…”

It’s always been my dream
To write the best poem
To be recognized as a poet
And to touch people through my writing
“Oh yeah, he wrote this…”

It’s always been my dream
To be the best father
Regardless of when it was
Just be the best for my child
“Oh yeah, that was MY dad…”

It’s always been my dream
To do something bigger than myself
To touch people on another level
Do something that really mattered
“I’ll always remember him”

I Need More Time

“I Need More Time”
March 28th, 2008

The clock is constantly ticking
Time is always “flying”
Flying right by me
Out my window
Moving too fast for me to catch up
Too fast for me to slow down
So much left to do
Seemingly less time to do it
Less time to love, write, care
Less time to work, to try and be there
More time is what we are all striving for

More time to be with you
More time to live
More time to love you
More time to always be there
