OLDER NOW



Hey there old you

From that time before when I was sore and broken.

You look more grown than that old time

More distant somehow, somehow more protected.

And I have felt the weight of my punished soul

Dragging behind me

Perching on my heavy shoulders.

You are a wonder

Just old me and old you.

I am fixed now, pieced back together with love and understanding

And acceptance that no man is sheltered from hurt and pain. We are all vulnerable to the storm; no man’s sail is as strong as the wind of life

Nothing is as powerful as love and strife.

But you are powerful. I feel your strength ooze from those deep lagoons and I cannot wait

To sit and learn from it.

With twinkly eyes

And soft words and stuff.


My life glimmers when you are in it

And every glance sends a shiver down my spine and every minute

You radiate the future.

I see it flickering in your brilliant soul.

Put my hand on your chest,

And

Just rest it there.

Praying some warmth will seep into my core.

I have never wanted you more than now.

All those before

Were shadows leading me

To true light.


You shine and dazzle in the dead of night

I explode with the thought that one day we might...
