Someday I’ll Know
by: Cora Eelman
They come and go, more quickly than
I’d really like, you know.
Sometimes I know their names,
But mostly, when I’d least expect,
Sometimes they hug me tight,
silent, but so loving as I cry,
and I go on again,
strengthened when I thought
I’d only die.
Sometimes they rush into my life,
bumping me, pushing,
and I see another way.
It’s only when they’re gone,
And the light from their fair lantern lingers on,
I wonder, where I would have been this day?
Are these chance meetings — fate —
or can it be
These are the angels God as promised me?
Are these friends — or angels — is it so?
Maybe not today,
Someday I’ll know!
