A Subtle Shift

There was a subtle shift today
I felt the axis slip...
Just a notch

I knew somehow
That life as it has been
Would not continue
I think we've been sad...
Both you and I...
Maybe for the same reason...
Maybe not...

There was a subtle shift...
Not enough to totally
Blow the boat out of the water...
Just enough to rock it gently

It leaves one wondering...
Would we have survived..
An iceberg?

The tides have turned
And yet..
The ocean that looms ahead of me
Doesn't seem that ferocious now

There was a subtle shift today
The truth was not revealed...
And still...I knew
Call it my...
Early warning system

Although words are lost to us...
I think that there is
A deeper understanding

I harbour no malice...
Perhaps only a wistful regret

Life is what we make of it...
Let's not make it hell for each other...
