How Cold The Ground...






How cold the ground

In which you lie

How cold and uninviting

And yet to be with you again

I would shed the flesh

That binds me.

Today...



In need of guidance

Today searched for the promise

Of Tomorrow

But could not find it.

Looking back

Today sought out the wisdom

Of Yesterday

But it too, could not be found.

Troubled

Today considered the frailty

Of its condition

And finally acknowledged


That it would forever be

Alone.
