In the enclosing, stiffening feeling
Of tightening closeness
What was once only ours
Gravity has taken from us
Such a cruel, cruel thing
All encompassing, draining
This thing is so fragile
This Earth,
This sky,
Us together tonight
What a waste of time
Or a life of reason
A summer with no sun
Or unpredictable
Like the rainfall
Must remember this is real
And the older we get
The less we feel
Accept that which is no longer
Embrace what doesn’t kill us
As we grow stronger

have i mentioned before...how DEEP i find you... wow...you ponder with the best of them jer, and YES...i have questions *S*...
stalking you still,
your jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
