Jan 1

Late at Night

Sometimes late when sleep is held at bay

All those memories come to play

You know, they’re never far

When a chance comes the night to mar

And the memories reopen the breaks in the

Heart unhealed and time won’t erase all

The wounds, refusing its work, call

As I will for time to complete the task

Though my soul knows what my heart doesn’t

Time never really completes that task.
