When / G. E. Schwartz

When I come to view

When I grow up

I want to be all

     about steadfastness

     Furtherance will be as ever

     Evil will never unravel (I know)

     But memory was and shall be

     And mercy will flow

     Morsels to me and mine

     Though nightly snows 

Cover my family

And I  will come to know 

I’ll know short-term conviction  

And have losses then 

But let me see whys (all of them)

And all their distances their paths  

For this in the end is how

I want to come away.
