The Knock upon the Door

Updated on September 30, 2009


Time begins and then it ends

The knock upon the door

The uniform, the somber face

The wait that is no more


The news that changes life at once

From all that could have been

The words that are both real and not

The hope that dies within


Wanting first to understand

And then to never know

The news that travels all too fast

While traveling all too slow


The doubts, the questions and the thoughts

That race around the mind

The friends, the comfort and support

The answers yet to find


Letting go while holding on

And wanting life to stay

The same as it has always been

The same as yesterday
