the edges of myself

words, words, words

a word of thanks, my gift to you

whose foresight, exuding intuition

masked beneath the cowardice of


moved worlds beyond my will.

Into an unknown certainty

and the birth of a new

and much more capable understanding

of love.

The recognition of giving and receiving

in equal measure–

a concept heretofore

unknown by my heart.

The balance of young and old reflected

back to me in his eyes and smile

impossibly familiar and entirely new.
