Headline Poem 11/19/14 -- I'll not

I'll not 

I'll not stay up and 
 worry
 about you, 
the things
  I cannot change. 
Instead, 
I'll remain on the trail of steady, 
on bridges that bend, 
and lead to 
places 
yet to be seen. 
It is when my scenery 
stretches, 
that I notice new things. 
If,  in  the  morning,
I wake with thee,
I will be kind and 
greet you in a most friendly way
with a mind clear from slumber
and a 
smile half-suspicious 
     on both sides. 
Then I can 
decide if 
you should join me 
for another day.
