, , , , ,

for this moment
i traveled –
with rocks in my shoes
fate unrelenting
a path stretched before
to find you
a love still to learn
as the barn
stood ten thousand days more

for this
i was tempted
in this i found grace
as witness to heaven –
is all that i know
what was come of a promise
to wait
for you here
as saved from my birth
to be written

fell from the ethers
to altar my way
stolen from dreams –
my reluctance
to move
forward and backward
as cedars bent low
a kiss
awaiting memories
of you
