Life Goes on

New people come, old people go
Some might stay longer although
You care not for them to
While dear ones with you are through

And life goes on with no respect
As I stand alone watching

Love birds who grow bored with space
Another who just broke an embrace
Yet others who would pretend
That their passion never ends

And life goes on with no respect
As I stand alone watching

Some would swear; loyal they’d stay
But as soon as they face the day
When a new bird flutters around
They’d be gone safe and sound

And life goes on with no respect
As I stand alone watching

A lover pained with memories
Another waiting for “a lover” to be
Yet another who’s living a lie
Of eternal ecstasy

And life goes on with no respect
As I stand alone watching

Time is gone
And we’re still here
Standing still, waiting for what!
We would never know my dear

As life goes on with no respect
To whom stand alone watching

    “Some would swear; loyal they’d stay
    But as soon as they face the day
    When a new bird flutters around
    They’d be gone safe and sound”

    is it Ok to quote a song??

    You said you’d always love me, all of my life
    And then you said your last goodbye…
    Why the sudden change, why all the lies,
    I should have seen it in your eyes

    This is what differentiates a real poet from those who just has a taste for poetry. You write your own words Ruby, and I comment with the words of Black Sabbath 🙂

    Your page is one of the few I check many times during the day.

    A poet writes to vent out, but without his reader who can relate or at least appreciate what he had written, he is not a poet. In other words; without you I’m not a writer.
    Welcome dear anytime, it’s always a pleasure to see you around. And thanks for the lovely lyrics.
