Benevolent Thief

yes, it is undeniable,
that like a thief in the night, 

time has taken much
of what I did not wish
to surrender

even so,

with what seems a touch of benevolence
embedded deep in the hands of time,
that which remains has been retooled –

leaving only the better parts of
this aging soul to continue

oh, that time may grant me this!

that I might spend what remains
in blissful ignorance of

what was and is no more

knowing only the delights found
in each sunrise and sunset –
being fully present in
what is and what will be

with you at my side!
