mutuality

I created distance

Between us

Thinking it was best

Not seeing that

I suppressed the me

Your presence

Was inviting me to see.

Come closer, please.

I may still

Want to run away

But I will stay,

Loving you

And inviting in more of me.

Waking up,

The Earth

Busily cares for all

Even as we sleep.

She tires,

Yet doesn’t complain.

“Will the children

Who are awake

Help the others?”

She wonders.
