Forty-one lingers in the moment,
Opening an oft-unopen door.
Revelation enters with the wind,
Telling him again what love is for,
Yet not without a twist of hidden torment.

One sometimes looks for content in contentment,
Never sure, of course, what one might find,
Even when the truth lies far from shore.
