Mr. P (and Tom)

We asked him what talent is and what he made of it, 
He said it is ‘finding someone to love who loves you’, 
That there’s no better thing in life than love and companionship, 
And through the glory all that matters is someone there to share it with; 

He told us there’s value in being skeptical about life,
Perhaps we never really saw it in the way he did, 
Having fifty year of life more (or less) than what we do,
Maybe we didn’t want to see the realistic part of life behind the optimism;

I can now see why Waterland meant so much more to him,
The entrapment of the past is indeed haunting and melancholic,
Imagine having a life situation in some ways similar to what is written,
That perhaps the story of his life is not so different from what is unwritten;

The painful chains of the past prevents the pen from writing a future,
And its clutches does indeed stop the ink from flowing in the present.
