An Immutable Act


Seven Suns and all that has come
since the day your spirit took flight.
yet it's only a candle's flicker in my eyes.

Tell me dear friend,
what ever drove you to such an immutable act?

The pen falls heavy
with the weight of these plaintive words.
What shall become of how I miss you,
now that time has had its say?
As if a tumbling wheel of questions
over and over I am the same in all my asking.

Tell me dear friend,
what ever drove you to such an immutable act?

I am here standing tall
atop these twenty four hundred days.
Here with memories intact,
I remain as dumbfounded,
as on the day that was your last.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
