I looked out to the quiet night
and thought I saw the One
But Nature did turn on the light
and lo! my love was gone.
The same way does the tick of Time
unveil the ugly Truth
Yet Love prevails above all odds
That is, if it is pure.
A poem from 2012. ‘This one was inspired by an entry in ‘Emotions’ from the book ‘Why the Toast Always Lands Butter Side Down – the Science of Murphy’s Law’ by Richard Robinson. This book tries to provide a rational explanation of the more trivial – or not so trivial – things in life.’
