Councilor

Councilor

 

 

Years and years and years ago,

A place I know not where –

You spoke a simple word to me

Its words not lost in air.

 

My hand was upon the door knob,

my mind upon the gate,

My thoughts reflecting getting home – for it had grown quite late.

 

In a moment of quiet reflection you spoke my name aloud,

and followed it with brief silence as I turned my gaze around.

 

“Councilor” you spoke – yes, you said that word to me.

As though in conversation I spoke words of profundity.

 

Now as the time has passed here – I find reason once again.

to sum up in a quiet statement your position as my friend.

 

Thoughtful conversations – never filled with doubt. Encouraging and prodding with

Spirit strong and stout.

 

Those words you spoke before to me – I speak them now to you,

Jill, “councilor” you truly are – Goodnight, Goodbye, Adieu.
