i know

i know You’re dead
and gone
at least from this world
i know i may be judged
for talking to You
i fear
this does not contain
the threshold of my pain
i know i’m mad
with pain and grief
that devil’s sands sustain
i know that
time does wither leaves
and sanity regain.

in spite of madness
pain unfolds
naked philosophers
all dressed in clothes
not short of blame’s
entrusted flustered
undamned brood
under stood
the Tree of Life
that nurtures
and does strife
to long remain
enriched in soil.

as seedlings float
apart from blame
disillusioned dissatisfied
they gently earth again
in confidence unkown
protected by a new
un-forged domain
and love that long
enriched in soil of
as adult bark
enriching soil.

I know you’re dead
and gone
from sight and toil
yet take with you
the gratitude
of seedling
to nourished soil
by nature’s pain
nestling seedlings
born again
to ever nourished
soil of love
that outlives all the
withering storms.
