In the long night watches
when hands lost and hands won
haunt this poet, I look to you,
haunted man that I am.

Mortality weighs upon me.
As year follows year the
dreams of youth escape
in the swift passage of time

In the dark time stream
haunted by what has been
undaunted by what might
come, I make my stand:

Still, I look to you for love
to keep my spirit young
