We Are Home

Eternal Journey

The gentle song
Moves through my heart again
Echoing like a lifetime of love contained
Connecting to all the crusty parts
Singing, “You are home”

And yet I resist,
I draw it out with everyday noise
Though humming the tune
When no one is watching
Humming, reviving, you are home

And why, I ask
Does life move so slow?
Why must I wait for the good things?
And the song still courses through my veins
You are home

Time it takes
The time it takes
Until we see the truth
Until we sing our song
Until we know we are home

What Time Does Love Take?

Summer love

What time does love take?
Time to fill us up and still leave room for more
To be burned and still long for the heat
To be cut and still desire the pain

In love, we come together as one
All pretenses fall away
Only souls laid bare and open
With the intensity of true connection

Time held for fighting does not fill the emptiness
Only open hearts,
Open to love
The hunger this aching world needs to be sated

What time does love take?
All the time in the world
And all the space in our hearts
