I will wait for you
At our place by the seam,
The craggy, bitter deep that binds our worlds.
In shadow you will slip between,
Unafraid of being caught by the light,
For you would be safe and again, with me.
I will sing our song
Softly, so not to wake the guards,
And you will hear it and finish the tune.
You must come.
The earth has revolved too slowly
And too long around the sun
Without you. Besides, the warmth of
Earth and sun
Went with you.
I will not leave you as you left me.
I will wait clutching your note
(Itself worn and frail and tattooed on my heart)
And singing our song until my throat bleeds.
I am not angry.
Perhaps a little, but do not
Let a little anger stay you.
I hope that the pain that forced you away
Does not keep you.
I did not see it before
But my eyes are open now.
Through the veil and beyond our place
I see you.
I hear your song.
I will share your burden.
