*This was marked August 15, 2015. I suppose I wrote a plea just before the end and let it sit on the shelf unattended. I am never sure what to do with such things because by the time I think this way, I’ve already set myself free.
Oh, timing you’re an odd item, aren’t you?
Make my wild heart sing,
And not just with your fervent passion
Just before we sleep
But in the morning with your guitar,
Coffee, omelets, and succulent melodies.
Before we travel the world to help change things
Help the tired sleep,
Give of ourselves to others
Because we both love
And contagious happy memories.
Holding the door longer than others
To help keep them from the rain
Making them smile
With the entirety of our own being.
The being of us,
And how beautiful
Together just about everything can be.
Help me, help us remember living
Before the world tried to destroy joy,
Only to replace it with hostility.
Let’s find tenderness again,
Even in the most mundane things.
The balance of the the lush oasis
Long before the desert was the only
Part of humanity left to see.
