Every time the cosmos shift, I start seeking the answers to us.
I plant my feet in the sand and as I look up,
I close my eyes for a second,
I like the moonlight on my face.
I see our futures so clearly intertwined,
I love you so fearlessly and unconditionally yet,
I wonder how I can feel so full of fire for you,
Have I grown independent from this time apart
or has my heart expanded enough to allow love,
in all its various forms,
to come in?
I think of you now and I feel a warmth,
A security that I’d been craving…
wanting for us.
I have sought out the crash of the waves and
the energy of the moon
for as long as I can remember,
Even though I know it doesn’t have the answers,
And aren’t we just here to make mistakes and learn lessons?
And maybe if we illuminate our hearts enough,
we can start building the next evolution of “us”-
one where multiple realities don’t play out in my head
and it’s you and me,
around the fire,
recommitting to us–
burning old bridges,
we can rise.
