Daily missive for Tuesday the 17th of May.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 17th of May.

There is no finality
Just a change of state
The closure we seek
Is just the opening of another door.
We walk in shadow
Seeking the light
Hoping to find an answer
To the burning of dreams
The broken melt of hearts
Seeking our healing
Even as pain remains.
We may learn
Of new ways to be
And shuffling feet
May find a rhythm again
But in this reluctant growth
We are followed
By the ghost of loss
All we can do
Is protect ourselves
From its crippling
In sleep there is only now
What was and will be, is…
The confusion of thoughts
We try to avoid
The need
For understanding is lost
We have a dream
And the truth of this
Consumes all actuality
Until the dawning
Break of days.
Time does not
Erase memories
But alters their perception
Softens every image.
The wither of age
Will never visit
A needful remembrance
That without
The daze of confusion
Will remain
Even in the passing of years.
It is only when the love
We carry is shared
Will it bring protection,
Comfort steady progress
Accompany mindful passage
And bring a surge of completion
To our journey.
