Lost Moments

Lost moments:

Magic has vanished,

Your jaded

Skies faded

Along with that smile you wear,

Flower in your hair.


Lost moments:

You’re last in the queue,

No passport,

No ticket,

No money to pay your way,

Your future looks grey.


Lost moments:

Unhappy alone,

Life’s on hold,

Bed is cold,

But beyond every sorrow’s

a bright tomorrow.

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt # 63 – Daniel Powter “Bad Day”

Sanaa is our hostess this week with a music video by Daniel Powter. Now, I’ve never heard of him and I have to admit it’s not my kind of music. But I was taken by the title – I’ve had my share of bad days and can relate to the sentiment in the lyrics. This poem isn’t my usual style, either, but it turned into lyrics all on its own!
