We are now active in a community called SteemIt.  There are contests going on all the time for artwork, poetry, and postings.  I decided to put in one of my past poems I wrote for Ren when were dating.

Zen-Art is holding a “Move me” poetry challenge.

She asked for a poem that would move her in a positive way.

I think now on the future and the past.
The days gone by, the days we’ve yet to see.
The days of heady youth that fly so fast.
The days of shining hope that yet may be.
For now at last I clearly see the truth.
And look back on a life of discontent.
And rue the choices of my foolish youth.
Forever gone the days of youth misspent.
The years spent in my solitary ways.
Myself the pin ’round which my life revolved.
And then I pause and think on coming days.
And then I think on you and am resolved.
To share my loves and dreams and joys and sorrows.
And trade MY yesterdays for OUR tomorrows.
