Memories, what are the really, a combination of good and bad, laughter and tears
Moments that are now hard to remember, glimpses of the past, momentary flashbacks
A look back when we were young and foolish and never carried an ounce of fear
Now, toward the end of our journey we would give anything to have those moments back

The storms of life pass us by so quickly as do those beautiful days of our life
Sadly, our yesterdays seem so very far away and our tomorrows, to dam close for comfort
Just like that child of yesterday, who grew into a beautiful woman who became my wife
Now scared from a life of beauty and gratitude to now, a life of uncertainty and discomfort

People always wanting more, never taking a moment to appreciate what they have right now
That’s until those years go quickly by and now all they want is more of what they have right now
How do you say goodbye to love, peace, hope, and those who have meant so much
It’s like saying goodbye to a smile, laugh, sigh, a tear or a loved one’s gentle touch

I’ve reached a point in my life where I am so sad because my memories make me lonely
And the truth is, I’m lonely because those same memories have now made me very sad
Jesus, please help me make it through for just one more day
Because the thoughts that run through my mind, seem to make me lose my way

Time it waits for no one my friends, and the rivers of life forever pass our way
Like leaves of autumn, our souls fall to the ground and sadly, just blow away
And we are left with our thoughts of yesterdays and how our tomorrows might feel so strange
Losing loved ones is life’s way of showing us, how everyone’s seasons will someday change

The Depressed Poet comes from many years of suffering from Depression. While in the hospital for this a doctor suggested that I try my hand at poetry and that is where life changed for me. I wrote about things I never really thought of before like God, Jesus, Heaven and so on. I do not consider myself a great or good writer because, I am not. What I am is a man, who stumbles through his words, so he can make it through his days. I also host a podcast called, The Coffee and Prayer Series.
