Old Yearnings do Not Fade

No need to give away
Dreams that haven't been steady
Just meet another day
And be again quite ready
For burning desires to burn
And give of their thousands or more
And something from this all learn
When you are wholesome and sure


Year shall be going on to lost
For everything drifts here on
Or becomes like the leaf's rust
When life from the times are gone
Decades will fly and you'll long
Every footstep that went away
Remember each touch so strong
That once was here but couldn't stay


Old yearnings do not fade
They just become so ‘newfangled’
When daylights in sunsets are made
And differently weaved and tangled
