Carried In The Wind

Does anybody know what time it is?

Does anybody really care?

Yesteryear has come and gone!

I used to watch time pass

until it all became a big blur.

Can anybody tell me

what time it really is?

I had a friend name Dave.

He died way before his time.

Shot in the head,

dead way to young.

I realized than

how fragile

life really is.

I hear a song played on the radio,

I look at an old painting.

Can I see creation's hand at work?

This song tells me in harmony

how I used to be.

Does anybody remember me?

Does anybody really care?

Can you tell what time it is?

I scream out loud.

The only witness is the clouds in the sky

and the trees and birds on the ground.

Tears fall from my eyes.

Is it really my heart bleeding?

I let the wind take me

and carry me away

to a much better place

where no more tears fall.

Is it all just a blur?

I woke up from a nightmare

of a dream.

I remembered my old friend Dave

who was in that dream.

I called out his name

and heard him speak to me

as though it was an echo in the wind.

critique........ not at all


comments ..... wonderful indeed ....... i really love this type of poems wherein the topic is so nicely distributed ....... references to your friend -- twice helps the poem to catch , leave and then again catch a emotional rhythm......... makes me write the following
