the world keeps on spinning

1 Dec

throughout my sorrows

and my happiest moments

throughout the tedious hours

and those all too brief times

of perfect beauty and balance

the world keeps on spinning

without opinion, remorse, or reprimand

without pity, praise, or pause

some things are bigger than i can

put down in words

except to write

what are centuries to us

may be seconds to another

the world keeps on spinning

and we are like infants

held by the earth

like a tender, loving mother
