On the Passing of innocence

Updated on February 27, 2011

To all those who greive

there is reason

a logic, a law

about the gate

between this world and that

empathy leads me to be explicit

there is cause for that which

we call fate.

We may think they had more to give

but they don't

their comings and going

agreed upon before

they did what they should

gave this world all they could

then continued to the next round

the one we can't see.

it may seem unfair

i don't blame you

you wish your years were forfit

not theirs

but you have yet to give

and if you live as you should

you will join them

rejoicing in good time.

Perhaps that times seems long

give then to life

till it hurts

when your race is run

you will go home

so run with the wind

don't dwell on the hurt.

Time passes quickly

and gives balm

you will also hear them

feel them cheer

as you pass the marks

that lead you back in their arms.

      "so run with the wind

      don't dwell on the hurt."

      Good advice ...
