although i am away from you
between us there is no distance.
i know the world we tried to build
crumbled to the sea.
life is full of flow and resistance,
somedays joy, somedays tragedy.
yet the sun rises and sets to see
love in all her children dance.

there is a place we hold within,
where everything we wish to be we are;
a silent space beyond bone and skin,
where light lives within the dark.
a place where we are lovers free,
more than the weight we are burdened by;
where we are much more than absentees,
where we are never born and will not ever die.
