Not Knowing Last, We Can At Least Know Best

do not regret love
years that could have been
they could not

seeking more healing ways
tossed many times to the rocks
one learns survival

seeking spirit's touch
when need is greatest
how else would you have known
to place a lighted candle in my left rib

in seeking always what love would do
in such and such an instance
eventually with practice
realize our dream
