A Change of Heart




my heart was once a wayward thing

I could not dare to let it rest

a world there twinkling calling me

it all was mine at my behest


a rolling stone collects no moss

I had no love for things serene

for boisterousness was what I craved

threw all at life no sight unseen


so avidly pursued my lusts

ne’er did I choose the noble part

no thought of truth or passing time

indulgent was my wayward heart


my heart now craves serenity

as years like sand have slipped away

enjoyed now precious things I’ve missed

these treasures in each single day


the crickets clicking in the dark

‘til sunrise boils at edge of night

I sit and sounds assail my soul

warm breezes kiss with soft delight


contented here as life moves past

and day by day my end draws near

the young ones race as once did I

I smile and wave and savor here
