Soul-Time


I can not un-regard
I can not deny the sustain,
I can not over-refrain
acknowledging the kind gifts
you gave.

I'll not ever repay
the time
you spent
and came
when I needed
time
time
to cry
time to cry;

I cannot re-pay
all that
but offer
only that
if you need me
if you need me
I'll be there
to pay my Soul-Debt-
the most sacred kind
of debt owed
and debt re-paid.

So here's
my IOU,
my promise
to come through
for you
when
it's your turn
to need
Soul-Time.

Time when
souls mix
and renew.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
