Serene memories

23 Apr

I write this, but with a sigh,

When in deep contemplation,

And during my serenest times,

Why do I always remember,

My responsibilities, my goals?


Arent those moods the ones,

I should enjoy, experience,

With a strong memory of the joy.

Yet, during my bliss,

Nature taps to awaken me.


To go back to my work,

To lift the axe again,

To stop being lazy,

And blame it on my heart.


I tear myself away from it, my tranquility,

And think if it was worth all the effort?

I love to dream, love to be at peace,

Love my serenity and my memory.


But nature has other plans,

She knocks me often,

And wants me to work,

Go back to my duties.


Ah, just one more moment,

But just one more sight,

And for eternity I will be content.

And labor with that one memory.

      Yes, doesnt this happen to most of us. Like Frost said,
      “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but, I have, Miles to go before I sleep” 🙂
