Turning the Page
by John Ratliff
It's as if time, Had forgotten itself, And in fun turned its hands too fast.
And left me here, With only memories, Just visions of a distant past.
Yet every night, As I sleep, A light begins to twinkle and gleam.
And for a while, I'm back again, If only in my dreams.
This inspirational book of poetry by John D. Ratliff explores the things that drive, inspire, and move us from our experiences to our dreams. It is an expression of our daily lives, page by page, day by day.
