December 1986


staring at the floor

not really knowing

I sit



so quickly replaced

by pain


unanswered questions

echo along empty halls

no reply


for now


if I could stand

between you and pain

I would


I am only a man

I can only love

I do


one truth remains

through devilish lies


God is Love!

He is alive!


to you I pray

in Love abide



To John and Marian Vandermeer,

after hearing of your pain.
