A Simple Togetherness Poem

In by Chris on March 7, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Here is not there, it is nothing but here.
I am not you, I am me.
But when disaster comes
Where will we be?
Lonely and swamped in personal seas
Banging our boats on trembling shoals
Haunted by the thought
That in spite of our goals –
To survive, to breathe, to live, to grow –
We cannot
About each other know.
No.
I believe that here is not there,
But there I must go.
You I must be,
And you be me.
The earth has calmed, my heart has slowed.
My eyes are open,
And I walk out this door.
