The damage and joy is already done!

Sweet majesty, who in the glorious sun resides,
Hold us true within your fullest bounty so reality can dawn.

Within your heart, when we together find rhythm,
And within your touch is a beyond-ness in the everyday.

Never far from the nothingness of her deep love
We live within our world of emotions, separating us in work.

You spoke caring words to heal a careless harm
Yet anger grow within me, drawn from a bewildering place.

From that we both moved on, with little lingering
You spoke words of school and kids and of those not present.

But I never moved on as she came and spoke to me
Of love and harm and pleasure and all that we truly are and..

In that silent majesty, within our noise, I truly saw
And heard as she spoke of what we both are in our goings on.

And at that very moment, the anger disappeared,
As I disappeared in your presence and you appeared as you are.

No longer clothed in the unreal emotions we create
The freedom of seeing you, as you are, released her fullest love.

I smiled and in my eyes I wondered what you saw
For in that smile and with my eyes I showed you her eternal love.

I could not speak as I was not there, I lived between
My shell of bones and skin and a pumping heart the size of a fist

And your smile and words and gentle touch of care
And at that very moment I felt at one within the glories of the sun.
