Who has not felt the aloneness
When eyes undefended
get a glimpse of the day's might
Alienated from the stillness of the night
Into a sight that is not quiet yet,
Probing around with unfocused gaze
into the light.
It is hesitation before the new
Of letting go
For staying is nowhere.
Let me be with you then
holding you gently within myself
you are my alleyway to the morning.
