Long-lost

It’s real. It’s true
True as you are.
Now.

Now
Here you are.
And how’ve you been?
It’s been just ages since I’ve seen you.
Can’t you stop? Just stay a while?

No?

Passing through.

But there’s your smile! You’ll share a cup?
You’ll sit a bit. Yes, sit and sup
Have food with us.

I know you’ve said that you can’t stay,
That you’ll away.
You’ll away and catch your bus
And when you’ve left, I’ll be bereft.

But, now;
I have this moment, now. Not past.
And though I know it cannot last
Now is not the time to think.

For though, tomorrow, I may sink in gloom
And feel, once more, that sense of doom not quite defined
A shade impending.

Now your unending kindness shines:
Banishes doubt, scatters fear.

I am safe…
…and you are here.

You are now.

What will come, will come, I know;
But for now…

…for now, you’re here

You’re here and now.
Here in this place, my face aglow.

The warmth I feel
It’s real. It’s true
True as you are.
Now.
