ONE LONG TEAR      

my life stories on
         those old dice
keep rolling
          days of trouble
days of fun
          days of learning
and knowing
          that one long day
may be the sum
          of where i am
slowly going

          sometimes i stop
and just listen
          what is that distant
sound i am hearing
          the surf crash
of ghosts in my heart
          or the whisper trail
of one long tear
          trickling down
many long years

          i look and listen
more closely now
          but the window
is fogged
          and the answer
is unspoken
          too much is
missing here

          yet beyond all this
will things be clearer
          and on looking back
will the window appear
          to be open
or not a window
          but a mirror
to reflect a smile
          or one long tear
that falls again
          into the mirror
just waiting
          to be rebroken
