Everlasting balance


My eyesight grows dim

Yet I see better than ever before

Everything broken now fits

In universal harmony

My body is weak

But is carried by my soul

To the beginning of time

And the end of eternity

Though this form will end

I will see you again

In the sun and the wind

And until then my friend

My place will be taken by my love

      Thank you so much Dusk for your kind remarks. I wanted to add more but decided that less is more.

      • dusk arising

        youre right, less is more. Let your reader fill in 'spaces' or 'places' with their own thoughts.... it's what we poets seem to have plenty of so why not LOL
