more and even more…

The day chimes to me

In ways I cannot ignore

The clock ticks and tocks

Away and away

As life takes of me

More and even more

I plead but to no avail

No moment for pen

No hour for page

And yet

My thoughts are held

Quite captive

To their very core

In eternal embrace

On love’s far distant shore

How I long to let go and write

More and even more…
