Pillars of Creation

Looking out to look inside
I see you both
the pillars of creation
above me, before me
deft hands
painting me into existence
with hands of love

Across all time
beyond the sky
my gratitude expands eternally
into a space that doesn’t yet exist
hand above my heart
your two hearts all over my art
the hands of love

Should you ever leave
you’ll never leave me
the pillars of creation
I carry, always, in me…

Sewing It Together

Our footprints in the sand veer off
two different paths they’re treading now
you go on and live your life

I’ll be here, I’ll be sewing it together
using the thread you taught me to weave
I go on and live my life

You go on, for we both must grow
push the boundaries of all we can be
I’m grateful for the years in your love
I pray you’ll remember me the same way

Even when the brightest spark had faded
and we both knew our time was ending
still you were my best friend
still you gave to me so much

Your fingerprints on my heart will linger
I hope they never fade, they are my reminder
now you must go on and live your life

I’m sewing it together, here
I’ll go on
as you’re sewing it together too
I wish you love…
