Moves on!

each moment does,

the ones we want to,

take forever

and the ones we want to savor

are gone in the blink of an eye

ever missing the point, though,

it is to live in each moment as it becomes this moment

no time to say goodbye or forward spy.

No time to say goodbye Or forward spy.

I fled no idea of what lay before.

Knowing only that behind lay nothing.

Save more pain and more suffering.

Pain, not only for me but for her also,

I could only hope that my departure.

Would give both of us peace in separation.

It did not matter where I ended up

for where I was was hell itself.

Yet where I went. I found you.

And in you. I found a heavenly hell.

And as I hang and sting with every stroke.

I would not change a thing. Not one stroke.

I would not change a thing. Not one stroke.

not one tear or voice cracking choke

stir the flames the fire to stoke

let's see how many times we can  before we croak!!!

 Before we croak

like a chorus of complaining frogs

or bark like a pack of agitated dogs

let us pause. . .

looking both within and without for the cause

oft times we rail at the unkindly mirror

that someone had the nerve to place before us.

Before us is the veil of the unknown

what awaits us from moment to moment

will it be commonplace

or miraculous

or horrific 

or just odd,

or just so boring our heads will nod?

Oh great Universe. . .

spare the child and spoil the rod

because if I claim to be brave,

I am truly a fraud!
