Daily missive for Wednesday the 29th of May.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 29th of May.

Even as tears
Fail to fall
They wait 
Barely hidden
Teetering unbidden
On the brink
Of discovery
Always ready to announce themselves
Eager to claim
An audience
As their progress is traced
Fueling the gracelessness
Of aging
Deepening a groove
Sinking into worn skin
Barely dry from yesterday
The stain of mourning
So easily recognised
The ragged raging eased
In brief respite
There will be another storm
In the by and by
So many tears
Still to be shed
In the days to come
Missing you
Does not diminish
There is evolution
Not absolution
Time and distance
Bring no resolution
Tears in themselves
Are not enough
To stay the execution
Of the soul
As yet
There is no return
To the garden
No regret to sully the memory
Or stay the dis-ease of longing
Though every tear that falls
Brings me closer
To an answer
I do not weep to forget
But to remember
And so I cry
Until we meet again
In the by and by.
