My life is more than my life,
More than possession can define.
My life is your life:
Because of you I refer to things as ours.
No longer can I say
“My heart breaks free upon the open sky.”
Lovers everywhere romance lovers anywhere—
One heart, one life swelling through the earth.
You have a wholeness that trembles,
For at times I am lost to you, at times I am yours.
You wander to the edge of wandering;
You break the bounds of lost and found.
A embrace would seem to contain you,
Yet you chastise my arms with your freedom.
Living is vague; my life takes shape when held
To the light of your life.
