ocean reef

we are complex
loving compassionate
when the threat has ceased
finding the time for peace
in that moment we’re released
with a hunger for more than food to feast

i love you so much more honey
to speak with our hearts so openly
our love not just for a moment
after such a momentous morning
so forlorn and barely coping
rash actions casting aspersions
impossible to breathe in
forgetting we are brethren
we were lost to one another

the spirit found you at my door
come home with me you implored
though scared beyond belief
with what we have endured
we cried together in our grief
your healing hug a great relief
you are the stem i am the leaf
you are the ocean i am the reef.
