One More Book to Read
There will always be one more book to be read. Always be one more song to be sung and one more dance to be shared in the strong, sheltering arms of somebody who cares. There’s nothing remarkable about that…and yet it’s one of the most remarkable things about this sweet old world of ours.
Time and history and memory flow on taking scant heed of our brief turns yet, at the same time, holding our being…our fleeting, eternal being…forever safe even after the energy that was us had found new purchase and the shell that was us has returned to Gaea’s tender embrace.
There will always be one smile to feel. And there will always be one more tear to be shed and one more passionate whisper to be breathed into the heart and the sheltering soul of somebody who cares, somebody you care about. There will always be one more kiss…carnal and chaste…one more healing sigh born of passion, sweat, and orgasm.
There will always be one more baby smiling, one more hand to hold, one more mountain to climb, one more nightmare to be overcome, one more dream…however improbable…to reach out for with all of the might in our fragile, indomitable bodies and souls.
The universe flows…as it ever has, as it ever will…and dust goes back to dust, light goes back to light. And there will always…always…be one more book to read.
