The face of one we love

Norfolk UK by Katherine

The face that was within me fades away.

I hope for some time longer it may stay.

That which I thought permanent is gone.

No more are we so special to someone.

At first I saw his face as if he lived

But to the dead there’s nothing we can give.

We must turn away and walk alone.

Let the face be blanked out like a stone.

The shingle on the beach, the cobbled street

They have no faces,nothing we can meet

Can we live without another’s gaze?

Mysterious is the Lord as are his ways
