Thankful, 2016

I am thankful for adversity.
For evil so naked
it gives me strength to fight,
exhausted as I am.

I am thankful for allies.
For surprising support from
unexpected places,
rising from the wreckage.

I am thankful for sight.
For all media, all recordings, all
memories immortalized and broadcast,
so we can truly see.

I am thankful for love.
For brothers and sisters of all kinds,
lifting each other up to
reach the unattainable.

And I am thankful for you.
For sharing this journey
and for always striving
to walk in the light.

Faith

Keeping the faith…

Cytherean Dreams

I have faith in your love. You will always love me.
I have faith in your strength to withstand what may come.
I have faith in the joy that we bring, blessed be.
I have faith in your laughter, so full and wholesome.

I have faith that the demons will cower in fear
When seeing the brightness our true love creates.
I have faith that those who would throw their spears
Will find that our love is too pure to abate.

I have faith we will face every challenge life brings
Both evil and good, as lovers, as friends.
I have faith that we will grow together, find wings
To lift up our spirits, to soar without end.

I have faith that our faith will just grow over time.
I will always be yours, and my knight will be mine.

Sunshine

Wherever you are, you walk in the sun.
My love from afar will bathe you in light.
Above, I will warm you, free you, my One
Who ignites the fire in my precious sight.
This love is not fleeting, nor will it fade
In the long dark time when you’re far from me.
My sun still dazzles, never to know shade,
Warming us both in this eternity.
I know you feel me, deep love in your heart,
You feel my sunshine imbuing your strength.
It does not matter if close or apart.
We cannot measure our love in mere length.
I long for the day, your warmth on my skin
Reminds me how close you always have been.

Strength

Written long ago in a totally different context, but so appropriate for today.

Cytherean Dreams

You said once
that I was amazing,
wonderful and
one of the strongest people you knew.
But you never saw me
before.
Before you, I was weak,
so needy that I had
no ability to stand
alone or see what it was
that I needed
to be me.
You brought me strength
and clarity
by being you.
Now I feel your weakness
and your dizziness
and confusion,
and my heart breaks
feeling your pain.
Be strong, my dear one,
and see your path ahead.
Bring along those you love
as you forge
your own destiny.
Feel my love travel with you
and know
who you are.

Reward

My treat, at the end
of my day,
is you. And you
loving and gentle
give me strength
to float
gliding above care
tumult of deadlines
and pressures
bearing down
threatening
to flatten me
under their weight.
But not today.
Because I know
I’ll be with
you, my reward
tonight.

Malevolence

Malevolent, powerful winds
an eye of pure destruction
ripping through foundations
of homes, of hearts, twisting
lives once meaningful
into nothingness, and
the birth came from us
from our surge into the light
the dark rising up to meet us
push us back down into
a vortex, black and churning.
We will rise, I say,
I declare in fury
at the furies who storm
our gates, screaming.
We will rise
and defeat darkness
malevolence transformed
into loving strength.
