Two Words



Life and love, two kindred words

Describe a means not untoward

To carry on along the way

While night is night and day is day


Yet in the space that lies between

Unspoken hopes in land of dreams

There may abide unbidden truth

Allowing pleasure’s pain to soothe


To guide us all through ether’s murk

Where self-deception often lurks

And if allowed will twist the tale

To make us think our journey’s failed


But lest cold fate may have its’ way

Instead of goodness holding sway

Remember well and truly this, 

It is a test, we must resist


And carry on with all and sundry

Circumstances so profoundly 

Soaked in seas of greater depth

Wherein the passage takes our breath


Yet all must hie along this course

In glorious song or bitter verse

To imagine otherwise my friend

Is to live and love in the land of pretend
