A poem

I want to be with you in the daylight

When the curtain goes down and the tragedy ends

I want to stand with you in the sunlight

Follow the road wherever it bends

I want to see your eyes shine in the summer

They’re just like stars when they’re all alight

I want to lie with you in the meadow

All day, then you’ll hold me all through the night

I want to know every curve and facet.

Every scar and wrinkle that makes you, you

I want to dance in the dawn I was robbed of

And then maybe you’ll find that you’re dancing, too

I know that we’re both so much more

Than the stories that we happened to live

I want to hold them close, and then let them become

Part of who we are–of what we have to give

I want to walk the same path beside you

Standing tall and proud in the dawn

I want you to know that the person I love

Is the person that you’ve been all along

    Such a beautiful poem! Particularly love these lines: “I want to know every curve and facet. Every scar and wrinkle that makes you,” To WANT to know the scars– that’s where really beautiful healing and intimacy can arise. 💞 Gorgeous work, Joelle!
