for all who have loved deeply
for all who have said goodbye
because there was no other way
for the grace and courage of those
who can look into anothers eyes
feel the pain and loneliness
tearing the heart
and not turn away
I couldn’t decide which to use. Both bring tears every time I watch. Both evoke emotions I have no name for.
our longest night
the beasts of the earth
and beneath the earth
return the sun
to the queen of light
and all the hands
of the promise of spring
join the dance

To do the useful thing,
to say the courageous thing,
to contemplate the beautiful thing,
that is enough for one man’s life.
This electric sun
fusing the wiring of me.
How can I not be?
