I’ll meet you

come to face you

in your minute


whatever trails I’ve sailed behind me

whatever webs of joy or pain

came to ride along side of me

will be set aside

will be folded

and tucked

and yet

still felt….

And when I meet you in your minute

survey your face

your arms

absorb your history and

reach to touch you

I will

be grateful to you

hold a heart torn in two for you

and say a prayer for you

ask for blessings for you,

keep my hands steady and my breath

gentle for you……

And my heart will beat with yours

until our minutes together

have ended

and are blended

into our separate lives

that will one day come

full circle
