Guilt

by Neil Marsden   Jan 18, 2008


A walk you said, across the forest floor,
To view a scene with awe and wonder.
There, peacefully grieve for my child no more.
So I did walk, and I did wonder,
As the sun sank on that granite day.
Then cold as steel retraced my steps,
Cast these to memory and drove away.
Then morning came to hack at me,
To take all conscious liberty.
To let... No make me know..
The sun would rise again each day,
To replenish the pain of yesterday.
Without the pain I have no love,
Without the love I have no heart.

Neil Graham Marsden
