I left the light on for you every night you were away.
Sent love to your becoming and blessed your evolution-
Even if that meant you may not ever again be pretzeled in my arms
On lazy afternoons
Or hold your feet in my hands.
To Listen to their stories.
And because of the way my parts work-
I could feel all the other embraces,
At night when we were sleeping-
In separate beds,
Next to the echo of another’s dreams-
i talked you down
Thru night sweats and wars with your past
Sometimes- your past won…
Today- love has.
Your Love makes sure that none of my pieces feel broken
Not even in the moments I peel myself back from the edge of your eclipse
Would you Introduce me to myself like we were born for this hello
As tho tomorrow wont arrive without the language we create.
ill bath all your papercuts in pixiedust kisses.
Show you all the ways before truly, lovingly, serves your most beautiful today
Honestly, I can no longer bare to stand by and watch you linger on the outskirts of your bliss- I wanna dance in this fire with you- conjure up a little rain- sip on some honey wine-
collapse on the bellies of our having come undone.
lets Teach eachother the pieces we carried with us for the other
And bow to the romance of our entwined dirt roads.
I always knew id meet you at my table
Saw you coming from so far off in the distance
That my life was full of your love before I even opened the door….
The moment you walked thru- I only knew you were home
recognized you by our matching hospitality
Id been saving you a branch on my family tree
So we could hang your porch swing
On the edge near the garden
And watch all the babies grow.
all we have is THIS NOW-
lets stop hiding.
we have stepped out of our silence with Peace
And wrapped our arms around a broken goodbye.
To be introduced to this morning.
I will shelter you. Be your refuge from the years the lies held you hostage to the nightmares.
… if we allow the dawn to embrace our maybes then the gold of the Sun can ignite our daydreams.
