These hands once soft,
Are timeworn
Yet strong.

These lips once silky,
Are parched
Yet yearn.

This spirit once seeking love,
Is forlorn
Yet enveloped in love by
God just the same.

And what of the heart?
Why are your footprints
Yet there

(Read just the first word of each line to reveal yet another pondering for that stanza... in this Prose...)

It has substance
I like the poem. Thanks. Remember the Crane poem about the man who was eating his own heart? When asked why he ate, he said "Because it is bitter, and because it is my heart" Yours just brought that to mind.

You don't know what your missing by passing up the others... (hehe)
But, I guess I can't expect to please everyone...
One of the things I'm supposed to accomplish this trip. (so I've been told...)
Thank you for the comments and I'm very happy everyone enjoyed it...

I enjoyed the
1st word lyrics, nice fragmentation and alteration of the substance in the poem. Why is there yet no thesis on these longest parts of our memory?

From the heart. No matter how timeworn, we still yearn.
