'Time Is'
and is not
our friend
time gives
and takes
to beauty's
incremental end
time is perception
cloaking illusion
we experience it
in snippets of
where, now and when
one day is
just a mental, vague door way
we comfort ourselves
in its masked delusion
before our eyes
ah, but sometimes
God steps over time
and hands us
that beautiful truth
that only his love
and mercy can provide
a direct eye line
to the love we always knew
stood just out of our sight
waiting to announce
himself even as
he simultaneously waited
to be announced
the word beloved itself
is but a simple truth
cause to 'be loved'
is all we ache to do
and I am no different from
all of time's other imprisoned
cause I ache to be loved
but only by
an oh so very specific you
and for me no other man
will ever do..........................
