Said and Sung

I’m sitting
in the heat
sweltering
heat

not chasing
the dreams
that got
away

but

dreaming the
dreams of
old age
yet

to come

these dreams
are better
than the
ones

that missed me
that flew by
that never
landed

because I have
had to wait
so long for
them

I can only
repeat what
has been said
and sung

you know
young or old
we wait and
hope

for

the best is
yet to come
