I gaze upon the darkened sky I see planes traveling near and far to where they go
I'll never know
to
somewhere carried on the wind where will they be
tomorow
For this I'll never know
while stuck here feet firmly on
the ground people up there I'll never know I'll never get the chance to
fly
only In my dreams
Far to old much to late to close to heavens gate I am but
If I had one
last chance I'd be somewhere up there high traveling on the
wind

Helen was left with no cure for her pain but the last chance was Injections I took to local Hospital
our last
hope
It the first I have
ever seen a doctor show tears when he had to
tell Helen they couldn't her give the
Injection
because It would affect her breathing her last chance had gone and she'd
left with unbearable
pain
as she looked at me with tears In her eyes I knew the pain for her to much to bear and I'd eventually lose her to  
god

Now with Helen's love I was
truly blessed at time when
I was down and almost
out desperately lonely
In what felt to like
a world full of
hate
Someone sure
heard my payers and
sent me my sweetheart
she restored all my pride
and for the very first
time Helen gave
her love
me
I never experienced for there was no other she was the one the love
and kindness to but
there won't
be another nows
She's has
passed
on
Time Is not a problem to me anymore retired from the rat race that we know as working life but financially no better
of
But unlike Helen I have no fear of dying not that any braver but life Is not quite the same  now
I'm on my
own
Perhaps the only thing that bother's me Is we have no say how we go but no fears of closing my eyes do I
have
for If had my way that's the way I would go with last thoughts In my head being of Helen and I'd happily go to perminate
sleep Imagining her back In my arms
so today tonight tomorrow or whenever just as long as I go this way more than happy to close my eye perminately just happy to drift
away

Beautiful Sylvain valleys and grassy savannas sooth my soul,
As here within my compact brain-cave
My mind wanders
Though a Multiverse
Of Realms.

From unfathomable gorges and deep down oceans
Up to soaring skies,
My inner eyes take in
Vistas of Infinity.

Imagination has no limits
Being a blessing and a curse.
Endless dreams of gold and honey
Opposed by fears of monstrous evils
Too horrific to ponder here.

My Id keeps churning up all manner of memories
And creations of the brain,
While in the background
Music plays
Punctuated only
By my Inner Voice.

Words, words keep welling up
From subliminal springs
Deep within my head.
Words, images, sounds
Feelings, tastes and smells,
Reality processed and reformed.

Reality recreated indeed
In finest detail,
A confusion of sights and sounds.
Give me those balmy days,
High in the hills
And low on the plains.
Let me bask in glorious sunshine,
Take a slumberous siesta
Then quaff that golden nectar:
Any brew will do.

Lets be kings and queens
Of the poetic landscape
Enjoying all
That The Muses
Will sing.

Sing, Muses, Sing!!!

Only time will tell what now life has In store for me for not sure no more any plans I may have had all gone out the door when my wife
she went
away
Not sure what to do anymore
life has changed so rapidly the plans I did have were as a couple but she never made to retirement and I never thought this to
be
It was me that always thought I would go first not for a moment despite Helen being ill never thought she go before me this was something I'd never planed for

I have to go back to my  childhood to where It
began a pretty 8 year old girl  sat her garden gate
while I passed by on the
bus into
town
But I didn't know It then
but this girl would many
years latter she would become my wife the love
of life for that It turned
out to
be
But what I didn't know I
would lose her to early In
life so I'm left with a
question that I'll never have the answer
to
If I could have seen what
was coming around the corner would It have made
any diffents If I
knew
for I still couldn't
have changed anything by knowing but still dosen't
stop me from asking the question what
If

Lock In my dreams of yesterdays days never
to be again safe In
my
bubble away from the world outside feeling
safe Inside my bubble
of
dreams
For the dream like state
I now live In protects
me from reality outside
don't
watch or read any new so I'm unaware of what's going in the outside world
not that I won't to or even for
It's a world that's never been to kind to me so I'm staying In my bubble of
dreams

Dream turned fantasise I dreamed of Helen but In
the dream she didn't know me in the dream I
woke In
forest
for I was lost the more I tried to find my way out the deeper the forest I did go trees so high they blocked
out the
sky
Out the corner of my eye caught sight of a beautiful young girl gracefully making her way through the enormous trees like a
butterfly
Even though I was hidden knew she seemed to aware I was there she started teesing flaunting her beautiful
figure
Cliding through the tree showing brief glimpses of her young body but leaving just enough to
my
own
Imagination
But In life Helen loved to teese and she was good she could be so naughty and such Incredibly wicked
laugh
But Helen still had this sort of school girl Inocence pretending to be shy but In truth Helen was far from being shy but It made her Incredibly
****
Helen was my living fantasise all I'd ever dreamed of and wanted for as long as I can remember she forfilled every thing In my
life
