they say

they say,
'absence makes the heart grow fonder'
(like that's a likely sentiment)
that love will grow
as distance grows
that love will thrive
in space

they say,
'out of sight, out of mind'
(but they're the shallow, hollow type)
that love will die
when passion dies
that love won't last
too long

they're wrong.

let there be Light

once I thought I wondered why
the sky is blue and babies cry -
once I thought I had to know
why dirt is brown and white is snow -
once I thought I wondered Who
could dream up things like me and you

but Things just Are, and they Will Be -
with no regard for thinking me -
I cannot know how Things were made -
from grain of sand to green grass blade -

I was not there to see Things Be -
and Things don't Grow with help from me -

all I've heard about Things' birth
cannot be tried while on this Earth

what you believe I cannot say -
we two can't Prove It anyway

"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof"
