The Seasons Uncouple

There’s comfort in knowing, things come and they go As the wind brings a newness, whether lilac or snow There’s joy in all laughter, given freely and new And music in the words, chosen only by you There’s a time to be born, and a time then to die An ending beginning, a final stop on your ride What was right at the start, truer still at the end And that angel before you, now the angel within With deaths only offer, …one last memory to choose As the seasons uncouple, —and your world again new (Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2016)
