sorrow (February 2006)

18 May

the breath of experience
pushes me through
it’s safe to let go

in God’s hands now
in God’s breath
the vivid portrait

of my guide, the one I love
flashes before me
as waterfalls

so clean, so clear, so pure
rush all around
all over me

I lose hold
slipping through fingers
the sediments of sorrow

the realisation I have before me
the temporary arms of a lover
gone and divided

I embrace you, more than you
I circle your heart, cupping
something I want

I want to remember your shape
so I can continue this
embrace, this hold

until I am ready to let you go
