Monuments and Extremes

By Bruce Clifford

Green rays of light
Ships passing in the night
Solid lines of broken dreams
Monuments and extremes

The ticking of the clock
Steaming in towards the dock
Lasting memories of what exceeds
Monuments and extremes

Hold on tight
I remember you
Like I remember you

Faded lights and time
Watching everyone unwind
Nautical slides and pots of tea
Monuments and extremes

Hold on tight
Don't let me go
How could you know
How could you know

Red rays of light
Time passes through the night
Hold on to what could have been
Monuments and extremes

10/9/16 Bruce Clifford
