Can I Write
Can I write me a story about a birthday gone right?
Can I write me a poem about a shiver in the night?
These things are more common,
Than minds can perceive.
Yet they hold a deep meaning
Can you now not hear?
Can I write me a story about a wedding in the fall?
Can I write me a poem about the wind and its call?
The measure of life
In a humans deep soul
Has the markings of time
That will never let go.
Can I write me a story about a death in a day?
Can I write me a poem about a path in life’s way?
The heart beats with mercy
For the soul that is lost
But the spirit rejoices
At a God that is just.
