longing

stories wait
the telling –
as solace binds the soul
light is rent in service
to our will
a secret rarely uttered
sleeps with us the night
longing for a time
to hold us still

became of this
our faith returned
when all the rest was lost –
delayed my breath
 to rob this verse
of rhyme
remembered not
to passing –
or universes crossed
 beholding to a promise
so divine

another day
some other life
a change to all we’ve known –
as carried I
your touch beneath
my sleeves
 a history rewritten
shall follow me the dawn –
 your heart
is beating somewhere
I can’t see

. . .
