"I believe in our future if you see what I mean"


Days of Always

for Maria, Stevie, and Teddy Lance

Both from the way things are and from the way things have been
From things both seen and unseen within the in between
I think we have a future if you see what I mean

Or at least now I can see how I still want to be
A part of the heart of the unfolding of these days
Which even though we fear them are the days of always
My eyes will see triumph as they have seen tragedy
Though dimmed by disappointment as nearsightedness they
Will keep on looking till they see the light anyway

Of many who are chosen a few will volunteer
And those who overcome fear become the chosen few
Within the in between here to do what we must do

I have a happy feeling that my sad eyes will see
Us all being happy having seen things through at last
Remembering the future by forgetting the past
Here in the days of always to never fade away
I believe in our future if you see what I mean
In these our days of always within the in between

In the in between we are connected now where we
In the matrix of these days becoming you and me
Together start what we were set apart to do here
Within a web of balances we come as we go
Here we want and need each other want and need to know
Reaching out to reach someone who does not disappear

But the sun in the morning comes back up in the east
Not where last night it went down in the west in at least
As good an example of the process as any
Of our progress toward the light within the in between
The future is ours and its promises are many
All night toward the light the dawn brings on another day

Of many who are chosen a few will volunteer
And those who overcome fear become the chosen few
Within the in between here to do what we must do

We are afraid but have nothing to be afraid of
We want to be happy but we need to deal with fear
All we need to be happy is to want to live love
Like I want and need to as I look at you and say
Here in the days of always within the in between
I think we have a future if you see what I mean

From things both seen and unseen within the in between
I believe in our future if you see what I mean
In these our days of always to never fade away

This poem is a gem, a lovely carving of a garden within its walls ready to burst into light. I love the refrain especially!
