Dancing with the limp

You will lose someone you can’t live without,
your heart will be badly broken,
the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved.
But this is also the good news.
They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up.
And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never...
heals perfectly—that still hurts
when the weather gets cold,
but you learn to dance with the limp..

My soul

There is one friend in the life
of each of us who seems not
a separate person,
however dear and beloved,
but an expansion,
an interpretation,
of one's self,
the very meaning of one's soul.

Where did I lose mine?

The sun and the sand..

As I bathe my hair in the golden rays,
I dig my toes deep in the tiniest grains;
As I watch these monsters of blue
wash off my tan;
I ain't want no shade,
I ain't like no rain;
I belong to the land,
of the sun and the sand..
