Wendy Bureau


Beloved


Suppose I could in time regress
But to reincarnate my soul
Journey amongst this life again
'Pon a fruition of love, that's whole

Suppose I could rewrite the tale
A lovers quest, surreal, divine
But only to recalcitrant
This fated path, this heart of mine

Suppose I could recant my sins
Bethink a world just out of grasp
Where the Moirai determine life
Embraced tightly within their clasp

Suppose I could but redefine
A harmless innocuous cliché
The trite phrase 'I love you'
Renewed, spoken only to portray

A love of truth and beauty
Venus, Aphrodite, the goddess of love
Suppose I could relive it all
Not just to love, but be beloved

    Wendy Bureau, telling lies - I suppose they are lies because she conjectures about
    her situation, when the fact is, what she is saying, appears to truely be her situation
    and that is ok, when we talk to ourselves. Robert Burns, Portland, Oregon (Report) Reply
