Account overdrawn

If only I could see an end,
and know what time there is to spend,
I may, perhaps, withdraw some days
with no more thought of he who pays.
 
And then when I had no days left,
with those remaining so bereft,
some weeping, sad, and quite forlorn,
I’d tarry there where I was born.
 
I’d hold your hand, and you would seek
the source of breath upon your cheek,
and then I’d whisper in your ear.
You’d know my presence, feel me near.
 
But, sadly, my account was bare.
There were no extra days to share!
And no withdrawal ever made.
The bank was empty, so I paid!

    a sad, very beautiful poem in which I would love to see love. I probably need a few more days, as always. Definitely great Peter! Life-time banks, life-time loans and credits …. unfortunately very up-to-date in our time … Momo salutes!

    my favorites..yes if you knew everything so, you would be easier to decide …. and again the last thought remains the best preparation: belief ….
