Fading

The light is fading

You say the light

shines

But I say

it fades

You tell me I’d better look

for myself

look there. . . the light shines

see it

it shines

but I say

it fades

to shine is to fade

perhaps the light is shining

but fade is not

opposite

it’s the process of fading

by shining

its always a fading

a fading

by shining

a fading

and then so do you

and then

so do I
