It never leaves
Day by day crawling silently forward
playing the long lost friend who wants
to come and stay.
I sit to share a moment with you
Reflective in mood, oh I know you are there
lingering like the depression of a gnawing hunger pain
just waiting to be fed.
I face the mirror
the windows of all reality.
What do I see – who is it, that looks back at me.
Why it is you of course: striding ever closer.
No longer that far away distant stranger
Hello, I say; come on in – you have finally
entered my life.
