[How to get Closure through an Absence.]

[   IN THE ABSENCE OF THE OTHER:  ]

 

Nature reclaims her way

New life yet the same as always

grows over the ruins of a love that built castles from the sands of time. 

 

The peace in the silence after a long tiresome war 

the eerie melancholic nostalgia as we remember what we fought for

what we died for

 

Remembering the storm as the seas raged against the walls of our sanctum

Remembering the warmth as we held each other through the nights

Remembering the dreams

The visions we shared as we reimagined the outside

Remember the clouds cast above our heads that dissipated 

as oceans fell down to wash us all away

 

New life grows

A hazy green washes over the heavy stones... 

And there's no one home... and the wind whistles with faint melodies 

The epoch coda of the song of storms.

[   IN THE PRESENCE THE SELF:  ]

 

In you i saw my self:

so many things that i knew i was

yet was pulling away from

 

In you i broke myself

into fragments to sort through and pick apart 

rearrange and alter to make them fit

to learn from

 

In you my pieces almost fit

once… or so we thought

But never fully, never truly.

 

I loved,  

I lost

I learned

I am growing…

to encompass more of myself 

and I wish this for you also 

 

For all the times we shared that were beautiful i am grateful 

For all the painful troubled times i am grateful too 

and wiser for it

For all the things I did

that failed to make you happy, I am sorry .

For all the things you wanted  

I couldn’t give, I am sorry too

And all the things you wanted me to be and I never would…

I simply accept

As I accept all the things I wanted from you 

you couldn’t give either. 

 

I let you go with love,

gratitude 

respect 

and blessings

For your future life and love

to be all you ever dreamed of. 

 

We showed each other all we could.

But holding onto ghosts never made us whole…

The ties that bound us now dissolving

And new Fire lights the Way

And 

     a new 

               fire

                     lights 

   

                                   the Way….

 

      [   singing:  ]

 

Let the Fire come

Let the Fire come

Let the fire dance

Let it come ablaze

To burn away the Pain

To burn away the Stain

Thats been in you so long

Thats been in me too long

 

And let the Soul…..            f     

                                                     l 

                                                            y 

 

Into a new and timeless Night Sky… of Home.
