anniversary forty-five – January 10

1.10.2015

hands laid upon,

pre-monish the

preacher said

advise in advance

before

the things go dread.

 

be a voice ahead

so that people

get it right,

I gaze now in

my own life

lest I miss the light.

 

for my body

in advancing years

for my heart in

love’s sweet ears

for my soul in

the Blessed’s tears,

 

and I give thanks

 

for all that has grown

across

these many years.
