Directions

direction

Life in review

recalling directions chosen

at times unknown

which one would lead

to where I now stand

breathing

like a new seed

absorbing the same sun

that has always followed

the same moon

like mistakes

erased after time shifted

gloom.

I recall with a smile

sitting on a porch

banjo in lap

how strings brought butterflies

that fluttered deep within

discovering a sound

now carved into my heart

a burning torch.

Not much has changed

for I still say

I love you

whenever I pray

knowing your soul is resting

give thanks that you taught me

a gift to cherish forever

as life continues to display

directions.
