I fear this sorrow is to make me somehow
More cognizant of careful now.
I’m hesitant with woeful things
Like a wobbly puppet on hidden strings,
I take no pleasure the knowing
That soon there comes the time of going.
So keep me under your spreading wings,
Swimming with candidates and kings.
And if I wish to stray somehow from
The fierce urgency of now,
Grab hold the scruff of grevious care,
Sweep me up if unaware
Of lifes one constant ere unfolding,
In the Now eternity beholding.

One response to “Reminders

  1. A good poem about grief and eternity, both of which are hard to reason about, since space-time and eternity are rather different. Grief allows us to see through time, to see the Now, where everything passes and nothing is lost.
