For my Readers by Dave Dutton-Fraser



Once again the world has turned

And I am amazed I have survived

But it seems in facing the darkness

I know where I have arrived.


After journeying through all the pain

And facing all myriad of fears,

I hear your words of complement

Through a rain of my own tears.


I wish I could meet every one of you

And shake hands or hold you close,

To thank each heart that held me up

When I was down and so then arose.


No one is immortal, the world keeps turning,

And to say we have time to meet is a lie.

Meetings that time make impossible

Sadly do not do the same to “Goodbyes”.


So if the world turns and seems against you

Just remember how that moon shines bright.

For it points out that even in darkness

There is a goddess that gives us light.


So whether we ever meet face to face

Or you are already a longtime friend,

I tell you when ever the world turns

It is towards a new day, not an end.
