Passages from Life

A moving finger sometimes goes back

Not to rewrite, but just to reread

Those passages from life that were

Small but never forgettable, perhaps

.

In the darkest hours, it wasn’t the moon

But the brightness, of the eyes and smile

From a friend’s face that just came over

Knowing, maybe guessing, that all wasn’t well

.

Rereading those passages brings back

Those times when all stopped

And still, something stirred, a soul

That merged and lifted the palls of gloom

.

The moving finger retraces the steps

That made a long journey happen

Never losing sight of the dim yet sure

Light at the end to be gained

.

The finger stops, once or twice

And then, relaxes, for all those times

Were nothing but the links that made

Life what it is today, and will be tomorrow too……..
