At Last and For Now

April 29, 2008
By Harper Higginbotham, Bastrop, TX

Pause
To Think
You know what this means
It all came together
Beautifully
Clean
And now
For now
They want to be you
You don't
Regret
What you have been through
It seems
Good things
Come to those who try
Are willing to suffer
Before they can fly
You lost it
You learned it
You got him
You work
You know that
It can't last
The ashes to dirt
And yet
And yet
For all that I know
My blood stops
My heart drops
The life in me grows
