You Are….

In search of a dream
I woke one night
lost and alone

In search of a dream –
generations have sought
I know how particular
I am not –
I walked
fording rapids
leaping the abyss
avoiding the Nothing
looking for you

In search of this dream
Lost
Alone
Always near tears
I awoke

What are you ?
What were you ?

You are my half
Without which the morning
is incomplete

You are an always open door
Beconing

You are
Becoming

You are
the bridge over this abyss

You are
the embrace
of my love

You are
the kiss that speaks of
Home
Family
Country

You are
that old friend
solitude

You are
the wind in my sail
My favorable wind

You are
something else
My half
You are an ancient
friend, love
A brilliance
once lost, now
found ?

You are my
Helen
Persephanie
Jasmine
Penelope
more

You are
Esperanza
That still can’t be
found
