If songs of old,
our futures told,
would all our dreams be dying?
Would in the mist,
our lovers kissed,
we only be goodbying? . . .
Would there in space,
be time and place,
for fighting and for flying? . . .
Or would it be,
on easy sea,
that all we are is sighing?
If ancient lore
and tales of yore
would tell me where I’m going —
I’d tell them back
to hold their flack:
This girl will keep on flowing.
For dreams of old
our futures hold,
what ever keeps us growing.
a friend, you see,
and far better than knowing.

As was your comment. Thank you so much.
You are very talented!
Thank you so much. You are kind!
Nice to see some poetry again Jess. By the way, I absolutely loved the posts about your fall. You of course understand that I mean the way you described it all and not the fact that it happened to you.
I’m glad that you re-blogged them all as otherwise I probably would never have got round to reading them. Hope you’re well.
Great to hear from you, Sean! Glad you liked the poem and the posts about my fall. Thank you for reading them! They’re a bit lengthier than what I usually write… And I *am* well. Thanks for asking! I hope the same for you!
Yes yes yes – thank you –
I knew you would like this, Hoss…
Wow Jess, you’ve got some serious talent!
Thank you so much, Lianne. I do love to write!
Uncertainty is indeed a friend.
It sure is, John. It sure is.
Yes, a friend indeed. :)
A mischievous friend, but a friend nonetheless :)
Haha. Yes, but with profound lessons to teach I believe. :D
It keeps us on our toes!
Yes! It gears us up for surprises!
I am so glad others agree!
beautiful. Love this, very much!
Hi Mandi. Thank you so much! This one means a lot to me personally. I dropped by your blog. It is lovely, too. So nice to meet you! :)
I love hearing your voice Jessica!
Thanks, Terri! It came out really quietly when I read this one.
I love that Jess! Very nice…
Thanks, Andy! This one is very important to me.
Wonderful poem, great meaning…and made better with your voice speaking the words.
Thank you, Randall! I definitely think the audio recording adds, too. :)
This was so beautiful Jess, the flow of the words just oozed so melodically. I loved it – Well done!
Thank you, Andrea! I really enjoyed creating this one. Probably one of my favorite poems so far. Hope you’re well! Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with your posts, lately! I really liked Macau, too! :)
Thank you, Peter!
Beautiful Jess. In words, thoughts, content, and voice as well. Stunning.
You are a kind fan, John. Thank you!
I am definitely a fan. Kind? I dunno. Honest fan for sure though. You are very talented
Well, thank you! I’m following you now, too. :)
Love it! Great poem again, Jess. Uncertainty…something we’re currently both familiar with ;) Uncertainty is scary, but at the same time it’s very liberating if we look at it from certain perspectives. Either we embrace it or we don’t. I don’t think we have much of a choice :D
“Uncertainty is scary, but at the same time it’s very liberating if we look at it from certain perspectives.” You nailed it, Mabel. I’m so glad you agree, and you’re right — we really don’t have much of a choice, so we might as well try and see it in a positive and motivating light! :)
a friend, you see,

Nicely put, and good to hear you singing again… :0)
Haha, dear friend. Thank you. I need to sing more often. ;)
an excellent poem, the verses almost haiku in structure.
Thank you, Fraggle! And I see what you mean about the structure. I am terrible at real haikus, though!!
Uncertainty gives spirit but probably takes away some peaceful moments. However, how else would we develop trust? Knowing is sometimes overrated. Loved it jESS!
Thank you so much, Marie! I really like this one, too. :)
This Jon fellow is a lucky guy. ;)
And he knows it, too. Thank you, Lucas! It is always wonderful to hear from you. :)
Yeah. You can write. :-)
Loved this Jess, for a myriad of reasons. Thank you for sharing it.
I’m so glad you liked it, Jeff. Thank *you* so much for reading it… I am Eternally grateful for your friendship. :)
Wonderful Jess! You’ve captured the bliss found within uncertainty. :)
I’m so glad you liked it, Professor! I think this is one of my new favorites. :)
Reblogged this on What the F… Feeds.
Wow. Thank you very much!!
