Living With Faith

Even in old age,
Even when you know
You’re dying,
Live as if tomorrow
Belongs to you
And is yours to live
To the fullest,
Live with that faith
For tomorrow
Lovers will still love
And you will be there
In their belonging,
Birds will keep singing
And you will be their song of praise,
Children will still laugh
And you will dwell
In their innocent play,
For life does not abandon you
Even as she draws
Her last breath from you
And pulls you down
From the stage.

  1. Beyond horizon’s reckless teeth
    whither our ship shall finally be torn
    proceeds her moon, mystical glow
    turning our sails to crimson wings.

    (This does not completely match your poem as I understand it but it was inspiration for mine, so thank you.)
