LAMENTATiON FOR THINGS AWED AND LOST

So many things
can break our hearts
From fleeting kisses
full of hope
to
Heroes tumbling
back to Earth
Starry eyed
I gave them Love
knowing full well
their frailties
from the start
I let them down-
don’t we all do it
Sometime, somehow-

It’s really all right
So very worth it
however fleeting
Glorious Idealism held
None of us
After all
can burn bright
as the sun
Be a life-sustaining
Umbilicus
connecting us
to God

Inadequate I am
to express
fill back up
the place in my heart
Your Likeness lingers
like
a blanketing fog

I’ll not stop
my tears
let them fill
an imaginary mote
with lost trust
Did you EVER
really grasp
that I loved you
so very much?
