Poet’s Corner – Traveled So Far

I traveled so far:
I forgot the joy,
And the first boy
Who came to kiss me at the fair.

I traveled so far:
I forgot my dancin’ shoes;
And how to feel the blues.
And those dreams come true,
Which used to come to me in pairs.

But then one day
While looking at the clouds,
I found my path;
And shed the wrath
From this angry world.

I curled up
In a blossom’s leaf.
And in disbelief
I found my wings;
And heard the angels sing.

Now I travel home;
And live life, full.
Understanding, I am only one
‘Neath this sun;
And in that comfort
I feel my shoes:
Dancin’ fools;
While I live my biggest.

Hoping again, I will find my joy;
Like the innocent boy
With tender kiss.
And should he walk away?
I will fly another day.
And should he never be?
I will dream another dream.
I will feel the rain, on the sands of St. Tropez:
Singing blues while sipping Beaujolais.‘

Twas that day I took my rest,
I found my best.
I became my child,
And held my wild
Truths close to my heart.

I traveled so far:
Stum’blin’ ‘neath the blue.
(I, romance’s glory;
Marching for love
In a Harlequin’s Story.)
Letting rhythms feed my heart
–No matter where–
Knowing, as I traveled so far,
I would always find my way
While I flew from here to there.
