Like a willful child
Through the wanting and the wailing
Through the “Nos” and the “Maybe’s”
Past the tears and the “Why’s”
Through the silence and the suffering,
The sobs and the hiccupping
Time passes, days and weeks and months and years
The wanting stays but mostly sleeps like an adolescent with a fever
Still sometimes rousing, but groggy and quiet
Endurance awakes when the shadows of discontent pass
Stretching and breathing and standing and walking
Until the door finally opens and the want that once was is no longer a craving
But a gift to be given which once was held back
And now having been received is once again, given away.
*A poem I wrote in the early 80’s in response to reading my brother Jeremy’s book of poems..
It’s good to remember what should never be forgotten.
I salute my memories and those I have created them with…
