wintry waltz

here.

once,

hung with anticipation of gifting,

promises made,

love and life to be shared,

we made a place,

this place,

safe within a glade.

here.

persisting,

tattered and torn,

a single wish,

upon this rusting and twisted spire.

here.

still,

within our Home,

where we’d lain,

exposed and vulnerable

the tender belly of love.

here.

remaining, so i knew,

for i believe in you and so i hope,

a leaning shaft between barren limbs,

illuminating the path to where

in death we shall be joined,

so i hasten this turn,

toward the dark promenade,

and with this cloaked presence,

offering a wintry waltz,

this oddment dance,

this invitation for peace,

i do so willingly accept.

is this what she meant,

the sharing of warmth,

the touching of skin upon another,

when she said,

peace be with you?

Farewell.
