The Wheel (Henry Barragan)

As the memories fade,
the hole heals.
Time spent and lost,
loves' gamble steals.
Sweet souls sour,
beneath your heels.

Loves lips soften,
fears grip steels.
What once was,
became unreal.
A fitting end,
to a bygone ordeal.
The heart was whole,
you stole a peel.
Love long lost,
still fills one with zeal.
Life's mysteries unfold,
others slowly reveal.
We keep on going,
up, down, around, the wheel.

--Henry Barragan
