Synchronicity Poem

Synchronicity Poem 


I was nearby at grandkid's birth

a wee new soul upon the earth

I marveled as her mother bore her 

I had birthed that child before her 

I a child my mother bore me

she her mother her before me 

I have come to realize

feelings seldom synchronize 

moments of the deepest kind 

craving a companion mind

are often hardest ones to share 

it's not that those I love don't care 

but they are all at different places 

different worries different faces

and most times when I have tried 

words don't come my tongue is tied 

or if they come they can't convey

all behind the words need say

but at a birth the moments touch

(and at a death) I know that much
