Little Parts (poem)

Updated on August 16, 2015

A dream I had this little part of you

The rest I guess I didn’t need to know

All those little things which didn’t show

Or found a place to hide just out of view


These reasons which add luster to your glow

Inherit darker places they weren’t due

And there to change the nature of their hue

Until uncertainty begins to grow


Who is this stranger which I never met

Where is the one I never knew at all

You’re not the one which I have come to see


Yet once I drifted past my last regret

And put asunder old familiar wall

The stranger I was looking at was me

      Wow. Very reflective, Martin. Every now and then it pays to reassess who we are and where we're going.
