Way It Go

Vintage Words

I have not considered long what I need,

right or otherwise. I do not know what to do

this hour or what to feel. This is like thoughts

with touch attached. I wanted you to live,

but mostly I needed you to stay.

.

I desired joy and our names and lives joined

in want and need and hope. Day by hour, hour

by quarter hour, life trudges foreward into

whatever is next.

.

Perhaps someday soon there will be purpose

again and the palms will open to accept blessings. 

Skies will rain joy enough to drown wet pain

and cold loss, hollow grief and raw regret.

.

I have settled for security and what is solid,

but enough has alway been the bad side

of the ultimate dream. Truth is, enough

is what we want most anyway.
