“ A Man Whole” ~ holds fervid soul ~

 

As I grow whole

Will event hold,

Or fail acquire

A fervid soul,

To render mind

Suitably bold,

That so in time

Be a man whole,

Afore I realize

I’d grown too old,

To effort recognize!

“ The Gift ” ~ of you ~

I want not forget

Fail having tried,

Or simply accept

I chose regret,

Mindful that I could

Rather than affect,

Without need to try

As tho I could deny,

You be easy on the eye…

 

I need recall

The times you tried

Offering your all,

I too blind to see

You needed me,

As I you even more

I might’ve realized

The gift you offered,

I hadn’t known before…

 

Doesn’t tax a memory,

To recall the many

And none as worth if any,

Yet didn’t know enough

I had this gift to hold,

But only now can tell

When I am wiser old,

And you’re now gone,

A gift for someone else to hold!
