At The End Of The Day
Justice may be blind but love is willing
To see what isn’t there or what could be,
To make the mundane look like it’s thrilling,
To peer behind tired smiles, as should be.
Resolve may be deaf but love is able
To resolutely listen to a hush
Between married people at the table
As they speak with shared sips, so sweet and lush.
Protests may be dumbed but love speaks loudly
Without contradicting hate in any way -
Just showing what is known, stating proudly
The loyalty abiding day to day.
Handicaps won’t kill love, although Death hovers.
Blind, deaf, and dumb are many good lovers.
