April 1986



now too near a companion



now too familiar a friend


my world, for a time

knocked off its spin

wildly falling

to oblivion


your nearness was all I craved

your nearness was all I missed






all have had their day


but now the wrath is gone

I pray the envy too

so only love remains

in this hollow shell of me


the pride and the glory

replaced by shame and grief

a bitter trial of growing

I pray I now have passed


Each New Day A Miracle
