There are days when we die a little;
wounded by loss,
or darks that abide in unguarded places
where whispers unbidden adhere;
where dreams that are dredged
from the deepest of sleep
foreshadowing doubt, undefined,
infiltrate places where sense without reason
and memories unloved are consigned.
There are days when we grow a little;
buoyed by a smile,
or a word,
or a touch,
or the quivering tail of a four footed friend
its story – “I love you so much.”
When the first light of dawn
brings the song of a bird
an anthem to herald the day
when a child’s attempt to walk the first yard
sees his feet get lost on the way.
There are days when we ponder a little
on the journey,
On how we accept joy and sorrow,
always knowing they’ll not compromise.
It’s a truth incontestable; final.
There is no escaping the years.
For the journey that’s life will forever
accommodate laughter and tears.
