Once Upon a Time

 

 

I use to listen to the music

all hours of the day.

I use to drink up a storm

and get drunk

falling flat on my face.

 

I would light some incense

and sing with the tunes

that were playing on the radio,

 

I would sip an after dinner drink

and rellax watching highlights

from the days ballgames,

 

There used to be a Tavern

that I use to go to all the time.

but that was years ago.

 

Those were the days my friend

forever and a day

we thought it would never end.

 

We would sing and dance

forevever and a day.

That was many years ago,

It was the life we choosed.

 

We would bet on few rounds of cards

I would usually win.

Oh how I wished

those days had never ended.

 

We used to laugh, we use to play,

those were the days.

 

Remember we dreamed

of all the great things we would do.

But the bottles of alcohol

would end our marriage.

 

Just the other night I talked

to an old fiend.

We talked about our childhood

that we did share.

Oh how it seemed the years

had passed on by.

 

We are now old and gray.

We both met are dreams

and had our failures.

 

I would get drunk

and see a strange reflection in the mirror.

Was that lonely fellow really me

 

Oh how I aged.

Through the years

I had many ups and downs.

But that was the way

my life had turned out.

 

After I had become paralyzed

at least I wasn't bitter sweat.

The old days I thought

that they would never end.

Forever and a day

that was the life we lived.

We would sing and dance

those were the days..

Victor,

 

I like this look into your life:

I would sip an after dinner drink

and rellax watching highlights

from the days ballgames ...

 

But the bottles of alcohol

would end our marriage.

It's a mix of the good and the bad.

Wonderful Vic. I enjoy also to read your poetry, ever. Nice nostalgic poem, melancholic , mixed, as Tony said, not only of the good and bad, but mix of feelings also.

 

I am sure while writing of this one, were present smiles and " tears "...

 

well done
