reunion without reconciliation…

 

your words
of
understanding
and
forgiveness
cannot
be heard
for
the distance
between
the two of you
is
greater
than ever before
oh
there was a time
when
perhaps
your words
might have
touched
the heart
but
now
your words
cannot
be
heard
nor
can
the tracing
of
your tears
be
followed
by
those gentle hands
no
your words
cannot be
heard
even tho
you stand
just
above
the grave

 

on the occasion of daybreak…

 

before my thoughts
have a chance
to merge
with
daily routines
i ponder
if
i should die
before
you wake
or
you should die
before
i
wake
how might
that day
and
those
days that follow
change
will
life’s beauty
still
be revealed
since
our love
is embedded
in
our hearts
and
tho
we shall be apart
what was
still is
for
we have shared
what others
only
dream of
