This Time (Mid-week meter entry)


This Time.

This time would be different

This time he wouldn’t try too hard and get it wrong
This time he wouldn’t say the wrong thing or forget to say the right thing.
This time he wouldn’t fight or quarrel or insist on his own way.
This time he wouldn’t come home to her drunk and angry.

This time would be different

This time he wouldn’t try at all or say anything at all or fight at all.
This time when he came home drunk and angry, she would be gone.  Truly, finally gone.

This time would be different.

    Ah – this time. If only we could keep our promises like Christ did what a better world it would be. Well, who knows – maybe next time.
