Vest

At dawn I stand adoring the amazing

Endurance I have found inside myself

 

Though I miss being alive with you; I feel hints

Of life come back through me when I convey

Cherished memories of your roaring spirit

Your smile, your soothing voice.

Hints of you that linger.

 

Making a choice to be alive

To my fullest opens my heart

To the whole:

 

Warm sunshine and the velvet darkness

of deep ocean.
