Now and Then



Denise, Mission Viejo California, 1988
“Depth of Sorrows” -
Not a bottomless well!

“Height of Joy” -
Not a limitless swell!

Life has a way,
Of smoothing out,
The hills and vales

When dark clouds clear,
You may find a hole -
Something missing!
Something stole!

The heart will break.
But it seems to mend.

Time puts distance
Between now and then.

We learn something
From every bend
The good and bad
Are meant to end!
