Mortality

MORTALITY

We still have time then
(Sat here in the waiting room
Till our train pulls in)
To ponder the big questions
Like how long remains and why

  6. Hmmm, how long remains could be taken more than one way Ben Naga. I know you meant that. I am not sure if I should now trundle off into the universe, riding waves of time and light, or interpret where I am at the moment in a long way. Hmmm. . . Maybe sitting in a railway station looking down tracks, waiting in the moment that is way too long, means something after all.
