Into the Light

Long Road Desktop Background
Unedited, time unloosed
Lays aside her burdens
Returns us as we were
You, with your Nikon
Five bucks in your pocket
Taking winding roads
Your cavalier grin
Easily at odds
With old pretensions
Back then, too easy
Laughing at ourselves
At everyday humanness
Intractable changes
Like braces on my teeth
Here, where fault lines
End, infractions fade
And only Truth stands
Telling what might have been
Now that you’re gone
I can love you as I did
Free as the wide wind
The way we were meant to
Into the light years
