Being Content
By E T Waldron

In an ephemeral world one
can never hope for true
contentment

I learned that, some like what
they become familiar with
while others want something
new every time

Neither is wrong, but where
there's too high an expectation
satisfaction suffers a loss

More than ever I see beyond
to the everlasting way that
looms in my future

This is where I must turn my
focus, knowing no other issue
matches it in importance

Too much emphasis is placed
on mundane matters , which
have no lasting virtue, trying to
please, what can't be pleased

Learn to enjoy what we have
knowing it is fleet at best
prepare for the glorious love
to come, that is eternal

So, I'll smile back at the stars as
they wink at me, and tell them
I'll be joining them soon, until then
I dream in loves cocoon 

etw~
