I thought about it
And then fifty years went by
I realized the stars hadn’t aligned
Maybe if I took the time
To reflect upon where my life has led
Gathering capsules where I’ve normally fled
Highlight the moments
That fatal winter
When everything changed and I began
To clearly know loneliness –
I had already dabbled
Now each time I glance
I might see you just for a minute
A comment and then suddenly I am alone
Life has become a constant challenge
Help me figure out
What it is that makes me stay away.
What about that critical mass?
What regards a new sunset?
How does the cycle remain static?
Why do I fear asking … why?
I will realize that playing with words
Writes a song that speaks aloud
The beauty of a frost driven morning
The lovely eyes that capture a soul
Elegance and passion are one
One day becomes another
We see the trees again
