Wednesday's Poetry Day #2

Sad to think that those who have been in the limelight when they were young find it hard to accept we all grow old in time. Much easier to keep those early days as happy memories and enjoy the time you have. Don't you agree?

The Days Of Glory Gone By

His glory days passed as years gone by
remembering he sadly breaths a sigh.

He's missing the days of playing ball
the happy memories he can now recall.

Remembering the roar of his faithful fans
as his homerun ball sails into the stands.

Wishing he can turn back the many years
to his youthful days and greeting cheers.

Alas his days of glory and years gone by
he now sadly sits back and lets out a sigh.

That's about it for now and until next time dear friends have a day of blessings.


  1. Love the poem, Toni, reminds me of what my hubby's doctor told him when he learned he was cancer free. He said "now go out there and live', I still think of those words from time to time. Why sit around and watch life, yes, we all grow old, so go out there and enjoy it, Live while you are blessed with your Life!

    1. Thank you Sylvia! How wonderful to hear your hubby is now cancer free. PTL my friend.

  2. Oh, how wonderfully said, Toni! You have such a gift for poetry...and this one speaks volumes to us. Don't just sit around waiting to die...but continue to live...whether it be out and about doing things and going places, or at home at our computers, sharing wisdom and love with those who are out there searching...we still have a purpose...and God has a plan. Love this today.

    1. Thank you so much Pamela. I truly appreciate your lovely comment my friend.
