I am the soil And I the tree
Together embraced, closely.
I am the wind And I the leaves
Together we float careless and free.
I am the heart And I the beat
Together we move quiet and discreet.
I am the pencil And I the paper
Together we scribble the answer.
I am the bones And I the skin
Together we build cover, beginning to end.
I am the door And I the knob
Together we absorb every throb.
I am the path And I the water
Together we travel, paving next chapters
I’m the composer And I the composition
Together creating melodies that grow and glisten.
I am the paint And I your canvas
Together splashed and blended into the infinite planned for us.
I am the body And I your bends
Together till the very end.
So when your color fades
and lines surround your eyes,
My lips will seal your heart with first loves reprise.
And when you are tiered,
I will be your awake
Forever in a waltz through love and heartache.
The breath to your lips, the sound to your silence,
The view to your window and the X to your spot;
We are but four eyes and one vision,
Percolated poetry, bound for eternity.
