Last Call

I would like so much more from you
As we reach that fork in the trail
You have to go right and me to the left
There is no point in looking back
As we travel on, before we cannot see
So leave something great of you, for me.

Let me think a while, what that can be.
Some of your writing, not just for me
I need a part of you that will live on
As this winters cold grips us both so hard
Then I can say, and let others read your card.
That your spoken words are what we should know.

I tell you now I won’t let you go
Until those words I hear from you
No cutting corners that’s just not your style
Tell us as it is, then we can think a while
And save the words you write or say
To use as a guideline for always and a day

You know my beliefs, if they are not true.
There will be darkness, not me, waiting for you.
Yet you say that you may arrive before I leave
It matters not, as there is now, no other time you see
Today is as yesterday, and tomorrow as well
It can be cold, or hot, but what the hell.

I will see you anyhow

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
This is for those that write but will not leave a lasting memory of what they have written, so we must think and write no matter how long it takes a piece that is unique and that others will remember. Not this one it's just a passing thought, Yours Ian.T
Editing stage: 


always say

in the meantime have a great BALLL


One day your critique will be in simple words
Where I can read them
and sort out any problems with my writing. lol
One of the girls wrote of Poe the other day
and said that he wrote a lot without correct poetic form
and is now one of the geniuses of poetry.
So we could be anything
Take care young Bard
and know that as you brush the sleep from your eyes
we are thinking of you,
Yours, Ian and Friends.
PS:- one day you will think more of some of my writings
and there will be a reason for such things.. As with St Patricks day ???????

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
