Scott Edward Cole: Music

Vanishing

(Cole)
You forge ahead
through the violence
of each day,
and, somehow,
find your way--
your resilience
is astonishing.

That you could sing
words of peace
from deep in your heart,
and mean everything you say
through your words
and your art.

I cling to you,
even though I know
your strength
is vanishing too,
what else can I do?

I have nothing...

I have nothing
in my hands
to offer you...

My thoughts
are of conclusions
waiting to be drawn
all else is gone.

I cling to you,
even though I know
your strength is
vanishing too,

What else can I do?
