MENDING

Time and patience endure
while restlessness abides
reviewing and remembering
lost paths and mountains
the small creeks and hills
seemingly as times escapes
while mending my heart
slower and thus stronger
becoming better all over
in the fields of Flanders
or the paddies of Nam
the deserts of the today
back alleys and blindness
seeking the discoveries
wondering of who I am
knowing where I’ve been
yet unable often to return
needing once more to mend
this sane world to wend
my spirit never to bend
new mountains to ascend!
