Completed Cause...


We live,
not in days or months or years
But in moments
They rest upon our shoulders
briefly,
then they disappear...


…leaving nothing…
but a smile
on our lips
Or a gnawing
deep inside
We touch, we taste
but cannot quell
with fingertips
the relentless tide…

…of moments, steadily increasing
Filling us
With a sense
of hope and loss
And never, ever ceasing
Until
they have completed their cause…
…a life
