Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

Humility

I am terribly sorry, I apologize,
     Six little words to say,
But potent enough to cover up
     The tears in a turbulent fray.

Homes, have been wrecked by its quiescence,
     Children have been torn apart,
And two lonely, obstinate people
     Have been disjoined, with a broken heart.

No words in the English language,
     Are as hard to acknowledge or say,
For it takes constant practice and humility,
     To become big enough to convey.
