A Wet Finger in the Sugar

header2

I know how long you waited for the days

When all the good things would come tumbling from the sky,

And on one warm mist covered morning they fell

Not as you imagined, but they were all the greater for being that.

 

I know how long you wished for all the kindnesses

To fall into your lap –

Some landed in disguise but you grew to love them all the same.

 

You stuck your wet finger in that sugar

And had a taste of what happiness was

One taste was all that you were allowed and now you have to say goodbye

But remember this – there are some who never even got to dip.
