Now and Then

[Feelings of guilt]

Feelings of guilt, feelings of resentment

(resentment worse perhaps, but hard to say

since each carries the other at its core)

pollute love, discolour grief.

But from my old long love now and its grief

these stains are being washed away

by the strong stream of our love, which flows

clean of those.

A further bliss to bless you for.
