In My Advancing Years

And,
In my advancing years...
Those struggles I feared,
Are memories of my past.

I ask and I've kept,
That peace of mind once out of my reach.
I desire more to explore,
A life now I've allowed to teach.
Instead of a search I keep,
In continued excuses met to refuse...
A life given to me.
And one I discovered I like,
In my advancing years.

And,
In my advancing years...
Tears that once flowed,
For those I miss so much in my life.
Today,
I've come to realize my life should be lived...
And not to fight,
Against...
The acceptance of surprises.
And I should stop sitting on a fence
In those disguises to hide.

In my advancing years,
I've learned to dance...
Until the music stops.
And I'm no longer here...
To hear as clear as I do now.
With ears that will be silenced.
And I should not wait,
Or anticipate the outcome.

But I will instill adventure.
In my advancing years uncensored.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In My Arms You'Re Held To Hold

Show me I'm the one,
You can care for.
And...
You will be that one,
I will always cared for.

Show me I'm the one,
You love,
And adore.
And...
You will be that one,
Adored and loved much more.

You will never find your life lived lonely.
Never will you be,
Alone in desperate needing.

You will never find my shoulder cold.
Not one felt from me.
This you can believe...
As we grow older.

In my arms you're held,
To hold!

Just show me I'm the one,
You can care for.
And...
You will be that one,
I will always cared for.

In my arms you're held,
To hold!
This you can believe...
As we grow older.

In my arms you're held,
To hold!

In My Heart You Belong

You are missed.
And,
In my heart you are there strong.
You are missed.
And,
In my heart you belong.

You are missed.
And,
In my heart you are there strong.
You are missed.
And,
In my heart you belong.

I hear people always say,
They hope somebody stays away.
But in my heart you are there strong.

I am not one who will portray,
I feel no pain and it's okay.
'Cause in my heart you belong.

I have weeped a week.
'Cause in my heart,
You are still strong.
Not a wink of sleep.
'Cause in my heart you belong.

I hear people always say,
They hope somebody stays away.
But in my heart you are there strong.

I am not one who will portray,
I feel no pain and it's okay.
'Cause in my heart you belong.

You are missed.
And,
In my heart you are there strong.
You are missed.
And,
In my heart you belong.

In My Less Than Tolerant Youth

I don't resent those ignorant.
Since that word could apply to anyone...
Who believe they are in a position,
To condescend someone else.
Because of one's economic status!
Or, of one's color of skin.

We all learn lessons that seem to never end.

I have had great conversations,
With those considered less intelligent.
To leave them with a wealth of knowledge...
That left me seeking them out again!
And wondering 'if'...
I'd be accepted as a friend?

We all learn lessons that seem to never end.

And those who express opinions,
With open mouths and shut ears...
Are often those with minds that are closed,
To thoughts of others...
They oppose.

Have you ever heard those say,
With their own children they can not communicate?
Did you leave them comprehending...
How blessed the children one day will feel?
And their frustrated faces will be replaced,
To express in celebration if they just kept faith!

I've lived to witness miracles...
In my less than tolerant youth.
My mother and father would stop me with a look.
And I would freeze,
Daring to breathe.

Just when my own patience began to slip from lips!
Knowing then it was wiser for me...
To wait and listen!
And not make a big deal of it.
Or I'd find it unbearable for me to sit.
Followed by my mother's promises,
That any healing done would not be quick!

We all learn lessons that seem to never end.
With some being pointless,
To have them repeated again.

I've lived to witness miracles...
In my less than tolerant youth.
With pictures depicted painting a thousand words.
Only a few did I dare to review in pursuit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
