Grace

Grace visited silently Grace called you gently But you shouted impatiently And angrily sent grace away. Graceless your life stands still Falsely happy with its fill Neither giving nor receiving Living a life quickly receding Grace though sent away Still waits night and day In patience and with forbearance To provide hope and love in abundance. … Continue reading Grace

Catching Shadows Before They Fall

It's not my failing eyesight, To see dusk not daylight, And see the dawn before night, To live in a world of half light. Yet sometimes I feel lost Pressed in by a moving forest Of those taller than me Whose shadows they can't see. Looking through that half darkness Listening to what isn't said … Continue reading Catching Shadows Before They Fall

And your listening created a … Continue reading A Moment Everlasting

The Measure of Each Other (Inspired by Adele’s Hello)

Once the years stop passing And our fissures fade to grey We two could have a reckoning And determine who would pay. I could admit my failures You could admit yours too We could each count the others And weigh them up all in all. I could then price your virtues And you could price mine A counter … Continue reading The Measure of Each Other (Inspired by Adele’s Hello)
