Many Sides

February 11, 2012

Thirty some years ago you left
Mother said you didn’t care
You say it hurt too much to come near
Now is the time to address
How we live the rest

Always there are many sides
What we think is going on
What we think the other thinks
What is really going on
In the scheme of beingness
None of this really matters

Today can you go past your pain
Can you love anyway
Cherish what is
This precious life
All we have
To give
To receive
To experience
How tender
Being human
Is a gift
