Is Newer

In a heart beat
In a whisper
Life moves on
When we would linger

In a whisper
In a season
Endless change
Forgotten reasons

In a season
In a hurry
Just don't stop
Another worry

In a hurry
In a moment
Turned to look
One more postponement

In a moment
In a Christmas
Raise a glass
Don't blink, you'll miss this

In a Christmas
In an absence
Just once more
This fragment passes

In an absence
In the present
Mending hearts
Seeking contentment

In the present
In the future
Don't look back
Ahead is newer

That is absolutely amazing Wendy! The structure, the repetition, the feeling!

I wish I could think more clearly, and enjoy your poem more fully, but I cannot.

I do trust you are well.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

Thank you, Rob-bear, that's very kind of you.

I hope you are looking after yourself and that J is recovering well. Let me know if I can help with pushing the uninvited black dog from your desk.

Take care,
Wendy :-)
