‘A Faded Man’ by Featured Artist The Lonely Author

The Lonely Author

A Faded Man

A faded man with dulled glories from yesterday

no planning for tomorrow just living for today

fractured remembrances he can no longer view

strange faces replaced the family that he knew

memories erased from the chalkboard of his mind

leaving no recollection of the wife he left behind

Inspiration is all around us. I recently viewed (for the umpteenth time) a wonderful movie based on a book (The Notebook) from one of my favorite authors, Nicholas Sparks.  It reminded me of Nancy Reagan and the sad end to President Ronald Reagan’s glorious life.

Today, coincidentally, is the thirtieth anniversary of the first meeting between Reagan and Gorbachev.

One other note: We don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to be grateful.

Keep writing.
