alice lost in labyrinth

poem: in loving & being loved by you

in loving & being loved by you

- there is a coming and a going -
whether the whenever has been
decided upon, this is inevitability

if you go from here, with compassion,
simple joy and knowing smile, and you
walk into that beautiful glow, that sun,
her shine (or even if you've already left)

I will have learned yet another way to love -
another treaded path revealed to me before;
those worn railroad tracks with scattered rust

and discarded pennies; reminders for me to throw
the past behind me; be thankful for the day ahead.
