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……..
