'Ships that pass in the night, and speak (to) each other in passing,
only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness;

Wanting To Be
When all that I once knew
estranges the ‘used to’s’,
I let those rue thoughts interchange;
then wait while solutions
encouraging movement for change!

for years, ‘bout the need to pay heed -
But now that it's hindsight

with sense of intense guaranteed!
It’s hard to share candor
now that I meander
the trail to that massive divide!
How will I grow older
with grace, when I’m colder
and summertime’s blazing ...
