The touch of light

The touch of light

The touch of light tonight
before the broad stroke of darkness
brings to mind the simplicity
my life was lacking
between the briars and thickets
over the cliffs that were surrounding me
when I woke from my childhood dreams

How you in my life
found me,
the wounded animal,
and cut a path for me to find you
in time, with curious nature

And you cleared the heart ache
with the precision of love
Burnt down the underbrush of the years
with the tenderness of your touch
like a torch to kerosene

The dead bolt shock your eyes held
was just enough to restart the beat
of my failing heart
without one lie
spoke between us

It is the rush of memory
I might revisit
as an old man in a home
looking back at lost friends and family
that press into my fading life
when this journey
never seemed so finite

I know now what would be lost
if you were never in my life
If I had passed you on the street
and just kept going

It is a bitter sweet pain and haunting hopelessness
that I feel now
thinking if the chance of our first meeting
was left as a casual embrace

How much I would have lost
without knowing it

And it is amazing to me now
how our life together
was like a civil war
the blatant oxymoronic feel of it
that it really was

How many times
did you shoot me dead
and I let you

But there was never a fight between us
in all the years we spent with each other
and I wasnt afraid to bend for you

Then one night you parted
without a glance
and I knew
I had lost my greatest battle

I always wished for one day more
but knew
it would never be enough
