Our lives are so received
Subject to a memory
The edifice of person.
Spirit of minds eventual uniting
Within the endless bounds of time
Eternities of sighs and disbeliefs.
Containment of desires
Eluded by weighted patience
Held to earthen legacies.
Lofty goals sought and surely seeking
Built ever higher beyond our reach
Carved from calloused hands own needing.
Symmetrical patterns celebrate
The solidness of life.
