A special day now thirty-two years ago but I have relived that day so many times in my mind and I hope I continue to.

Time Machine By Christopher Bernard Lidstone

Time Machine

Christopher Bernard Lidstone

I’m glad to be on my own
In this tiny room alone
Where no one will bother me
Here in Hell’s sanctuary

Everyday and night alone
No TV, no telephone
No friendly faces here to see
Just my pen and memories

Where will the pen take me tonight
Somewhere far or just in sight
It travels distance and time too
It’s the only way to get to you

We had so few times sad
And you know I’m never mad
So I’ll find a happy place
And fly this pen through time and space

Now to make my travel plans
Back in time to Newfoundland
There are so many things to do
So much time there spent with you

I remember this one time
It really stands out in my mind
The day you stood in front of me
And said, “I’m having your baby”

I wanted everyone to know
And notes my angel’s special glow
I walked everywhere I could
Every street in Botwood

I was so proud of you
And you were proud of yourself too
So that’s where I’ll go tonight
I’ll get in bed and turn the light

And with luck that’s where I’ll stay
I have no wish to see the day
