How High The Moon

The moon is so far out of reach
as well as my needs
the anguish
of starting over
in life and love
I may as well be reaching for the moon

stargazing or ,wishing on a star
all utter nonsense
as far as that will go

Turn back time
that cannot be done
forward marching ever on
but to what drum?

Destined to live a life of solitude
and so I go on
my mind a silent movie
yet I am planted on solid ground

Still what is it all for
this obscure existence
where time and space meet
ever knowing how it will end

Driven, I am driven
but what is it I seek?
happiness with myself , peace endless peace
so that I may be at rest within my own mind

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

just some thoughts running around my mind one evening

Hello, Chrys,
I hear ya, with this one! It's as if it is written for me, or at least, someone like me. My interpretation stirs up the feelings I have about going forward in my solitary life since my husband passed over 11 years ago. I feel too young and full of life to not contemplate another partner, but really - "how high the moon?" As if magic happens twice... Love your ending, which of course, is what we all want. Good, good.
Thank you!

are made to be taken, dreams are meant to be followed. You have tapped into the minds of everyone that is alone. Not only those that have lost a partner, as love; but those who never had the privilage to be a part of such a union. I see those who
watch others hug, kiss and touch each other. They seem to draw away from the rest of the outside world, for just that instant.
And you just know, that they are wondering what it is like and can they achieve it? Be your smiling happy self, be alert for signs. Not everyone is brave enough to try, keep looking for the magic. ~ Gee.

i feel a strong sense of being lost here, beautifully crafted, I think we can all feel like this at sometime in life, i love your last stanza because for me it says i will never give up. we do need to search for what is missing nothing in life is simple.

Thank you...Teddy

many, many thanks to you for that lost yes I am I go through each day staying busy but evening is when it all hits me I can be in a room full of people and yet alone

This is for you i hope it works.

Thank you...Teddy

I can't resist chiming in here because I feel touched to the core by your sad write. Oh, that sly Cupid threw me a curve ball in form of a much younger than me woman. But, it was love and we married 51 years ago. Neither of us had regrets about our age difference, and now that we both have turned grey, we are the perfect match. But, the inevitable day of my departure will arrive, and I know she will remain single after that. It's not what I wish for her, but after a lifetime of love and true friendship, she would not be interested in a life with someone else. Let me conclude by saying, you are a brave woman--and so is Lavender whose comment I have read. My heart goes out to both of you. With much affection,
Jerry
