The delicacy of the melody
whispers of what might have been
and also what still can become.
Loving you is like dancing
on a tightrope above all
my previous knowings.
Terrifying in scale,
exhilarating in scope,
emergent in balance and imbalance,
marked by the courageous gestures
we make in the face of loss
and changed by the work of making dreams real
in the thoughtscapes of our own minds
and the landscapes of our shared world.
I am because of all things.
My existence a product of synergy
and my continuance a matter of participation.
Saying yes to this love story
is an intermingling of all of
who I have been,
and am actively becoming
that pulls me forward
like an upswell on
the wave of evolution
within and between all
