Between Spirit and Surrender

 

I forgive

everything that made

our truth.

My spirit never surrenders

and you

are never free of the past – your heart –damaged

beyond the emotions we have known.

 

                           Love has survived-

                                                           dreams have survived-

                                                             hope has survived-

 

we have survived -whatever this was

and wasn’t.

 We will find a way

through all the tomorrows

now

on the way.

I cast my possibilities to the grandmothers and stars.

They have been here before

and know time

will make its own story

 about a future left

unclaimed.


My heart lingers

gathering up

scattered memories 

survivors of everything we found

I leave-

with you-

hope and desire – war and surrender –

the understanding we shared

and the peace found

next to the heart fires

we called

home.
