Just In Case
Your argument is so persuasive.
I detect a tiny trace of
what I hope will take the place of
love which can be so evasive,
locked within the warm embrace of
strangers cutting to the chase.
Staring bravely in the face of
danger everywhere pervasive.
Help me now to show the grace of
all my years lived in the space of
time to regulate the pace of
life lived just in case.
