Forever

Something is happening.
A beginning where I thought only endings lived.
An awakening from a long troubled sleep.
A quickening of synapses.
It is a moment to be seized,
an opportunity to be exploited
so don’t be surprised
if my goals and attitudes change
course. You are still
my oars and anchor,
my lodestone,
the star by which I steer,
my travelling partner of choice
forever.

Between Forever and Long Ago

Between Forever and Long Ago

Between forever and long ago
There’s a song I used to know.
I sang it loud to calm my fears
Or soft to cushion tears.

Between forever and long ago
There’s a word I used to know.
Forcing me to make a choice
To stand and raise my voice

Between forever and long ago
There’s a path I used to know.
Clear and smooth or full of stones
It always led me home. 

Between forever and long ago
There’s love I used know.
From life to life I followed him
To meet and love again. 

And the song I sing is the beating of my wings
And the word I cry is freedom.
And the path I choose is the one less used
And the man I love’s the reason.

Between forever and long ago again.
