|This lived-in home –
once hopeful symbol to our shared future -
This lived-in home has
for too long
(ever so slowly;
too slowly for me to notice at first;
slow enough for me to self-deceive far too long!).
Do I repair this lived-in, decaying home?
Can I restore this lived-in home to my memory’s strict remembrance?
Should I try?
Should I, instead, leave this decaying lived-in home?
Leave you behind?
I think I shall try ...
try to clear these cluttered rooms
try to open these shuttered windows
try to breathe new life into this lived-in, decaying home.
Will I ask you to help?
Will you help?
Can you help?
Let’s try, shall we?
Try to help each other bring new life to this (decaying) lived-in home.
