the way one might build a life

spent a week with a box in a thousand pieces
i built it up slowly
the way one might build a life
i searched and i struggled to make sense
of each piece and it’s particular place
in the tapestry of my life
as time wore on the pattern formed up tight
save for those last missing pieces
someone left out of the box
and i wonder what are the odds
we build it up slowly
the way one might build a life
we wait in forced patience
some of us admitting the frustration
hoping that last missing piece
will bring the puzzle into focus
for we built it up so slowly
one painstaking piece at a time
the way one might build a life

the way one might build a life
