Happy Main’s Day!
“Ruins” by Edward W . Raby, Sr.
There was once life here
Now all is ruin
Window pains broken
Doorways with no doors
We build this house brick by brick
Love was the mortar
We had children, raised them
We gave our love to them
Taking the mortar and giving it to them
Then they left.
We discovered the mortar of our love
Was cracked and crumbling – nothing.
But we had no time to reset it.
We continued to live giving it away
The roof collapsed
The bricks fell apart
We walked away
And now all is ruins.
A sad testimony to what was
The Rabyd Skald – Wandering Soul, Bard, and Philosopher. The Grey Wayfarer.
