Pockets

Today
I search
Time’s deep pockets
Seeking loose change
Shiny moments
Happy

One of pair
Mismatched in haste
Time’s orphan
Learning to make do
Darn and patch
Improvising in gawky
Moves

The meaning of those
Seeking hands penny
Drop in recall
My happy sad heart
Finally relates
To its concerned
Loving farewells

How was I to know?
Full of callow bravado
Wide eyed -your mirror
Image at that, a fact that flooded
Your gentle soul with consternation
All knowing that you were
With sorrow rimmed
Otherworldly
Inward seer eyes

Do know
I’ve survived
A bit dented
Much bruised
Nevertheless
Inner intact
Smudge free
As you would’ve expected
No more, no less~
