May we still remember tender moments
Though shattered fragments lie like broken glass
Reflecting willful spent, patent torment,
Decried the future as denied the past.
Might there be a time when softer feelings
Arise to surface, no need to protect,
Shall there be a union, desired healing,
Hopeful, if undetected as of yet.
When the pride and pain have both subsided
Could neutral ground be found where meeting claims,
After we have shared and each confided,
Hearts and souls, truce sincere in all loves named.
Love there was and nothing can forsake this,
Though world of love betrayed without a kiss.
Whose hands may be the ones to be allowed
to mould and shape,
mould and shape,
caress, with loving fingertips,
those fingertips, caress so fine,
Whose lips may whisper soft encouragement,
encouragement, so soft,
so soft, it melts,
melts and flows,
liquid bounty from whose lips,
softest lips, words so soft,
Whose eyes may gaze intently, seeing all, revealing all,
revealed the soul,
soul to soul,
Whose essence, unconcealed, mingles with,
floods all between,
becomes the one,
the knowing one,
the other side of you.
