Like the oft wounded earth,
healed of its scars,
Like a mother forgetting
her pains, in her baby’s clasp,

Like a river cleansed,
of its shores, flows limitless and pure,
Like a song, old as breath,
is still as new, as life’s first gasp,

Like the clear sky upon the ocean floor,
I’ve forgotten, like they’ve never been,
a thousand lifetimes of pain,
in just this one moment, with you.
