WHAT TRULY MATTERS
In less than a century of gathering stars,
all is done - only a glimpse of god awaits.
Shallow labored breathing ignites
passionate recall of unexpected moments
jumping into sharp relief against a
backdrop of lost opportunities.
if only another chance,
how different it could be.
Easing this internalized torment,
extraordinary gifts given and shared
rush forward in compensation
and suddenly clarity pierces through confusion.
