37/365: This One

Aidan Morgan

It is quite a thing to look left
and see who tracks pace with you,
who takes in time with you,
extends a generous faith.
I am often lost
and would flee the bones that house me,
but this one greets my need with kindness.
This one's hands are there when mine are wanting
and hold my place.

I am writing one poem every day in 2016, and I am using the hashtag #365poems to document my progress.
