Turning

 

Life runs its course
All so smooth and straight
Predictable from day to day
Then a turning.
~
A parting of the ways,
A change in the way
Things no longer the same
In the blink of an eye.
~
In sadness for the old
Looking to the joy of the new.
The prayers for the dead
Are for the living.
~
Expectation change to the new
As the new sets
Up housekeeping
Not only in the heart,
~
But in the house.
The new rearranges
And replaces the old
As it makes itself to home.
~
The home shrinks then grows,
Animals come and go,
To better homes
Where love abounds.
~
The chickens make eggs
The horse eats their hay
The hound howl at the moon
And I await my love.
~
Though I made my deal,
And made my promise,
I will not expect
Any more than I will get.
~
My life takes another turn
From the old
Into the new
One day at a time.
~
Deal with the Devil
And you never win,
Deal with life
And you always die.
~
Born into sin
Sentence to death,
Only Love can take you beyond,
A Love beyond understanding.
~
A love that transients
Both the old and the new,
A Love that binds,
A Love that mends.
~
A Love beyond the grave
A Love for the living
A living Love
That makes life worth living.
~
Contentment is fleeting
By its very nature
But happiness is attainable
And can last a lifetime.
~
But happiness is not guaranteed
Just its pursuit, and in its pursuit
It may be found
By just following the path.
~
From the old into the new
Day by day
One step at a time
Until the old becomes the new.
~
And loss of contentment drive
Me from the complacent
To seek what may be found
And take my Love by the hand.
~
Love is blind and hears
Not a harsh word
It sees no blemish
And finds no fault.
~
It is happy in of itself
And needs not the object
Of it desires to thrive.
Hope is enough to keep it alive.
~
Hope, the last of the Virtues
To die, and the first to resurrect.
Long suffering, it feeds love
Through all famine.
~
Hope shield Love from all abuse
Hope lets Love grow in the
Stoniest of grounds,
And Hope keeps Faith alive.
~
Faith that the loved will reciprocate,
Faith that Love will bring happiness home,
Faith that the old will turn into the new,
And Love is forever renewed.
~
Time move on
Turning the new into the old
Mixing and blinding
Love, Hope Faith, and Happiness.
~
Different apportions
At different times
More Hope one time,
More Happiness another
~
Sometimes despair
That the old will never become new
But then sometimes
A turning, and all things seem anew.
~
Hope in its grave
Spring to life
Watering Love with its tears,
And unspoken sobs.
~
Tomorrow will bring
What it will bring,
But today there was a turning.
A turning away from the old.
~
Change is as eternal
As the same old, same old.
Change mixes and confuses
And spawns the new.
~
Bringing new choices,
Forcing new decisions.
Change will leave you alone
For a while.
~
I become complacent
Forbearing in fear
That it would never change,
And it may change back.
~
Only the living will tell,
And the tell will be told
Day by day
Choice by choice by choice.
~
