HAVEN

To escape from yesterday
Is to take shelter in today
The here and now can stand
Against the evil gone before
It is the only thing that can
Though it cannot close the door
My soul has been seared with terror
My heart has been riddled with regret;
This in mind, make no mistake, no error
That was then, this is now, do not forget
That the life we live and loves of today
Are our shields of steel against yesterday

Author’s Note: For Boon… with much love
