As Easy As Looking At Pictures


If there is anything,
That having personal experiences bring...
Is one simple fact felt and kept intact.
An obtaining of them to have,
Is personal only for the one...
Living to confront them to get them done.

And others who have yet to acquire,
Similar experiences to reminisce in their lives...
Often perceive with belief,
A doing to remove obstacles they have not faced...
Is as easy as looking at pictures in a magazine.
To then flip quickly after seeing a date to replace it.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
