Taking Stock


Taking Stock

- Jeff Weddle (U.S.A.)

One light against the final dark

one nail to save a broken gate


one promise to salvage hope 

one dog to weigh my couch to the floor


one bottle to soften betrayal 

one love to bind me to this world


one covenant shattered

one sin unforgiven


one missed path

one secret remaining 


one book left unread 

one poem still to write 


one last hard question 

one impossible way home
