The Path Missed


This was to lead to thus
and thus to that
and That was the place
which had to be reached

But during this
was the diverting over there
And getting closer to thus
was missed the other no longer there

That which had to be
was then lost
and with that missed path
hope lost overwhelmed

The path instead taken
with lowered head and muted heart
for being the way not chosen
remained so long clouded and unseen

Clouded for eyes closed
as being not That first conceived
So long was that actually offered
passed by

That first place
which thought demanded
had no equal no replacement
by choice or not
became this place, this path that is now

This path that is now
if but closed eyes be opened
so clouds be lifted
so a path could be seen
not to be missed at all
