Gone

Do you ever think about me?

Do you wonder how I am?

Since you left, since you left

Do you fight off what reminds you of me

Cast it out and then

Pretend we never met?

I know I touched your heart, I know

I hit some vein

If you ever come this way

Will you let the light back in?

I don’t know all your darkness, I

Don’t know all your pain

I’m sure whatever trauma stalks you

Ripped you from this place

But if the stars speak softly to you

Of love and easy grace,

Remember all the words I sent you

Remember then my face.

Let us love not with vigor, or emotion, or with zest

Let us love not with impassioned words and hearts pounding in our chest

Let us love instead with sorrow and the heartbreakings of heaven,

Each added soul a brimming whole

Of halves and broken edges.

Let us love with all our purpose and our glances and our restings

Let us love with every one in world envisioned like the best

Let us love like nothing ever happened and nothing ever will;

Let us love as wide and far as the east is from the west.

Like God in Earth heals our hurts,

Let us love

Away

The

World.
