And Then There Is Love

written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



Emotions streaming on
a current of flotsam and jetsam.

Discarded relationships,
ebbing tide. Unknown future

staring back at me,
fugitive of a dying former self.

Disillusionment and lies
follow me, trying to ascertain

my fate. Destination unknown,
I blindly saunter onward.

The unexpected presents
itself, righting all wrongdoings.

You jump into my river, to save my
sinking vessel. Here to remind me,
and then there is love!
