    the space between our sufferings

    this is one of those nights
    when the day has been long
    and I’m looking for words
    in a blank book of an evening
    because I promised I would
    have something to say
    I promised to meet you here
    I have riffled through the
    pages of my memory
    hoping a story would tell
    itself or at least tell me
    something worth saying
    and all I have to offer is
    this space between our
    sufferings come sit with
    me maybe we don’t need
    to say anything but that

    Peace,
    Milton

      With you in the journey Milton. No more words needed. I hear your heart. You are loved.

      I am always grateful for the music you share and the personal narrative that states the universal. Never more grateful than when I receive your poetry. Thank you, Milton.

      Thank you for being here. Perhaps it was a day to let us listen to ourselves. The WAIT found its way back and it’s simply perfect for this day.
