Can We Ever Know
I will traverse the path that some may walk
Here in this place balanced
Between the step last taken
and the one to come
How do I know this step is true
and if the step is sure
Can we ever know
until we move on

I will repeat the words that some may speak
Here in this place caught
Between the words now spoken
and the ones unsaid
How do I know this word is true
and if this word holds love
Can we ever know
until we hear

I will describe the sights that some may see
Here in this place trapped
Between the light of morning
and the darks of night
How do I know this view is true
and if this sight holds warmth
Can we ever know
until our eyes open

I will await the end that some hold dear
Here in this place transfixed
Between the promise of life
and the certainty of death
How do I know this hope is true
and if this eternal life holds hope
Can we ever know
until we die

Thomas..... Caught between dawning and darkness...

We all have been at that cross road in life what to belive or not to believe....

That next step of hope and faith...Life and death....

 All we can do is live each day with more wisdom we have been taught from our past....

 Goodness have you been peeking inside my heart trials.....

 When you write its from the heart of life itself.....THis is brilliant...

 Always ~ She Whispers
