In Response to Bluebells~Short Story Slam Week 16~ Sweet Princess, There is Still Time~



Why did you  give me such a loving smile the first time we met?
I  keep asking this question and no satisfactory answer I get
And then we got talking so quickly and  soon our minds were set
And I knew from the start you secretly admired someone, you bet?

How many times from behind the wall you had tried to see
Who is it in the room  who might be in his or her company?
What problems may be faced what happiness may be embraced?
With whom are being shared biscuits and tinkling cups of tea?

I know how your imagination wandered in the vastness of the view
From dawn to dusk afternoon day and night and each day anew
Sometimes for hours thinking watching waiting assuming too
Sometimes catching a glimpse of what you each day wanted to

But as in life there is always a measure of torture and pain
There is more loss of  objects people and places than gain
And a history written read and always in talks and stories told
That if rules and laws are not obeyed all is taken away by rain

In  life time is such and days go by one has to hope pray and wait
Its all simple no tricks of trade nor means to imply or persuade
A path ordained to be followed with love work and eyes straight
To live to love  to cherish birds plants animals and all vertebrate

How true its not good to run away from your near and dear ones
There are dangers robbers kidnappers and crushers around in tons
No matter how brave strong and bold pretty daughters may become
its safer to follow the path nature ordained for each and everyone.

See how the ducklings follow their Mother and make a lovely family
No ugliness mars the beauty love and obedience in waddling on  merrily
They have picked the flowers and are showing the way home so rightly
Push away whatever keeps you fixed, the rain will stop falling shortly
