Your fingers comb the light
stretch it out to silken thread
a halo for my bended head
I watch through life worn eyes
map the traces of your tears
those laughter lines from years
before we met.

As fragile as the dawn
as strong as sinews
ripped from lion’s jaw:
you’re reaching out for love
with honesty I can’t forgive,
we dance around the pivot where
we often meet

& all my yesterday’s come tumbling in
to mock me now, how did we know
that moment that we met
before the kiss, & all of this
that love is possible once more,
that hearts may allow one by one
a shining.
