A Poem – Space

This space, this hole I fill

It’s mine to share but not to give

My imprint began fresh, grew straight, but wanes with each passing of the sun

I divide my space, my soul, giving love freely to daughters and sons forward

Until I fade like the darkest star into the black

And with her eyes closed and her mind still,

I will smile with the ones that now fill my space

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings


About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
