There are lot's of lonely old people in the world with time on their hands to look back in their lives.

Once I was a young girl with dreams and aspirations
Then I was a lover, lying in strong and caring arms
As a wife I enjoyed a strong and loving relationship
Then as a mother I experienced the bond of children
Now as I reach my older years I’m a lover no more
Neither do I have anyone to wake up to in the morning
There’s no longer anyone knocking on my door
Nor does the phone ring with greetings in my ears
I often look back and wonder, were did it go?
I sometimes dwell and ponder the ‘what if’ scenario
The aspirations now, have long been and gone
Although I’m tired and aging the dreaming still goes on

Ohh... If it were not for our dreams, Brian! A lovely, 'looking back' piece that speaks to the heart.
We must continue on making memories and dreaming.

Many blessings.....Jerry

It did`nt go anywhere. It`s still there in your memories. Beautiful memories. Memories worth dreaming about. As long as there are memories, there will be dreams. I hear dreams do come true...

Brian, this is a lovely poem. I truly enjoyed it.
Please let me know when you post more.

Oh, this is excellent, sad but very true to the word!!! You certainly can paint a vivid picture about the sadness of old age and being alone. Great work, two thumbs up!!!!
