Mama Casillas



as the sun sinks 

in between 

light and you, 



at the demise 

in between  

song and sleep, 



within that fateful hour  

of prayer 

cleaving to a loose hope, 



is sinking, 

world is fleeting, 

as eternity echoes 

into the limelight 

of a crux 


Don't cry my dear, 

for just around the bend

therein lies  

a beautiful place ahead,



like the end 

when all else fails 


But we don't know 

that end to all things 



in between now and then

beyond the mar 

beheld in my arms


Destiny's plight 

leaves me in the dusk of leave,



please don't leave me,

for I love you


You'll always

have a place in my heart

in between a beautiful dream

and sojourn embrace


...As that soft narrow 


bides that final goodbye 

into the light
