A DAY SHORT OF FOREVER
Honor grows slowly, loath to take root;
frail rose of infinite attention.
Contempt blooms in an instant, vile weed
thriving on neglect and rejection.
The promises of rosy cradle
can die just a week more than never.
The struggle stretching out straining,
seems to fall a day short of forever.
But against the power of caring,
thorned complaints of a lifetime fail,
and the careless litany of hate wanes,
while graceful deeds instantly prevail.
