For D.C. By Way of Seattle
I wasn’t sure how to convey the love
living within me, which bear your name.
I could only do what my poet’s soul
knew how to do, and that was allowing
you to enter the confines of my heart,
touching the very essence of my soul.
Here is where you would live, as I waited
for you to let go of your past,
- to live again,
- to seek happiness again,
- and to allow me to love you.
I am not sure where your heart stands,
but I am here, loving you from afar,
- as my heart,
- my soul,
- my body,
each remains faithful to all that
encompasses the entity of your being.
May your heart choose to live again,
awakening to love, allowing the blossoming of two entities to begin forming as one.
