Reflecting on the times gone by,

whilst lonely in a field,

a tiny distant shining light

to me was then revealed.


The light it bade me hither,

by love’s gravity it seems;

and when the two became as one,

I transcended human dreams.


The young will have their visions

in the light which then redeems

the knowledge of from whence we came:

and when old we dream our dreams.




That which I now offer,

has been learned through many years,

I have learned of it through laughter,

and learned of it through tears.


Much is done in ignorance,

and much is done in pain,

but if I had to walk such road,

then I would do it all again.


And if you and I do not thus sing

of what sets the heart aglow,

then it could well take the children

so long, to come to know.


One thing, I would ask readers,

if I may be so bold;

to read the lines which follow,

in the order which they’re told.
