Passage of time
I'm years older now
the California hotel
is still on 'J' street
I stayed there
with a girl once
here I am
50 some years later
looking for her
when you truly
fall in love
you never checkout.

I keep writing
this poems I feel
no matter whos here
who has disappeared
who has past away
I still see me
a little boy standing
next to his mother
with a smile
on his face

light has moved
over the hills
that surround
my prison
there will be
no sun today
nor will the
rain fall
clouds fill the sky
above me
I fall back
into a dream
about a beautiful
young woman
who helps me
get through my days
