A Better Story

By John I. Blair

I need a better story,
A story Iíll believe
But one that comforts me,
A story that my love
Is in a shining place
And not forever gone.

I donít believe in heaven;
I donít believe in hell;
I donít believe
Is a realistic prospect
For weíve long been told
That nothing is forever,
Though that advice may carry
Meanings more than one.

So I am clinging,
Sometimes with hope,
Sometimes fear,
To a faith
That she resides
Beyond a doubt
Here within my memory,
Here within my poems;
And Iím not alone.
