A closure is a kind of farewell.


Today is sufficient

with all its morbid traffic

of endless news

its personal upheavals

that bring us gloom.

So with a kind of wave

as if with a magic wand

we attempt a closure

push away the gloom

till maybe its gone.

The Sun will always rise another day

God said Earth is here

forever

so let us with these morbid things

keep our eyes fixed

on what is better.
