Love
A little mischievous grin
and a twinkle in the eye
signals innocence at play.

Frustration
A door shut yet again
to a dream, to a path, to ruin?
To which we know not.

Passion
Caressing his moonlit frame
Feeling his heat radiating
In the cool night air.

Awe
Suckling in her sleep
A tear to your eye
Blessed for such a wonderful gift.

Pain
A splinter from a child’s flesh.
Kiss away the pain.
The experience will change him.

Wisdom
We exist only an instant.
What difference did we make?
How often did we love?
How often did we hate?
