For Tony and Eric

From “You Rise, I Fall”

No words big or broad enough
deep or high enough
to explain pure power emotion

traveling from one heart cracked open
to another open to receive or
willing to understand

walk with a ways, hold a hand
human to human, and pass it on
And in the willingness…

the ability   the strength   the choice
to transcend
all boundaries between us and them

all barriers to love in all realms
Not repress, but express
once it feels safe to release

What shards have risen to the surface
can now be healed
And in grief shared…a path to…

shared relief of…
dare I say, happiness?

To let go…even more so…
Yes.

Heart opens
even more.

    Yes!

    Loved this, and the first line of the next stanza, “what shards have risen to the surface…”
