looking at the future
birthing what is possible
stolen glances never are enough
stories shared while walls collapse
bricks and stone they drop
sitting in the valley
longing for the
mountain top

moments in the sun
holding hands and walking blocks
thousands pass in faded shades don't stop
walking those same streets alone
shadows slip and box
sitting in the valley
longing for the
mountain top

if you would be so kind,
i would lead you through my house of seven rooms
seven senses, seven feelings, seven wonders,
seven melodies, seven moments of hope-dusted despair
scoured into a pearly finish by a deeply abiding sense of faith
for you to say 'yes' and come forward with me
and i would spend any evening sitting on the sidewalk
inhaling your ambrosial fragrance and flax-golden presence
imbibing love's prodigal homecoming right on time
it's you that i can't seem to leave behind
daily supplication and meditation in lotus
same as on your living room floor
wishing you were in the bed
adjacent breaths away as before
giving thanks for all
yet there are times
of deep longing and hunger in your absence
lonely without you
with a place no one can take or claim
if you would be so kind,
i need you
hurry up this way again
