I can see clearly

I can see clearly how
you bloom in night’s harbour
dance your own brand of freedom
speak of angel blossom, mind’s tautologies’
rapt midnight visions
an innocent belief in truth.

You jump from jaded pavements
hand me back the lost lotus
remind me soul is always knocking
at the still door waiting to be heard.

I can see clearly how
fairy tales spin the stardust heaven
mystery breathes on sunset beaches
that love’s a troubadour spanning centuries
faith an echo ever to be reached
robed in constancy.

An hour with you
redresses compromise
reflects the speckled pathway to infinity:
now I’ve been taught by one I thought to teach
that hope’s a potent drug, blind man sees too much
a hand across a table’s sometimes not enough.

I can see clearly how
I threw myself away
the day I learnt to love you.
