Argument


Gloucester Daily Times

---- — In the pitch

Of moments’

Anger, frustration

Striving

For daily bread

I forget

‘Tis human

Her in her beauty

The grace she has

To offer

The balm of a smile

The answer of a kiss

‘Tis human

Nor does my wedding

Band nor hers

Nor gifts and tributes

To her abounding

Remind me

‘Tis human

When I am blind

To her love

And mine for her

In darkness

‘Tis human

Then I can only

Wait

For my mind to clear

My heart to open

‘Tis human

Puzzled at the strife

When it is over

Sorry for the time

When love was buried

Like a treasure

Hidden and forgot
