Virgilio F. De leon Jr.MD

I stand here in the edge of the river
looking at what I have become
This look , this stare , this demeanor
The man shaped to achieve so much valor

And I find the things that are lacking
That I am old and the valor has gone past
The drive has been diminished and I am scarred
Could this be the last day at last?

The things that I have not done
Nor the things I have left unsaid over the years
The shallow and deep things that dwell in my heart
with all its tears and tears and fears  

But you took my hand and took me away
Probably long before I can see
And you said these words before I can doubt
"You are enough for me."
