There is peace here
A peace I have not known for many days
A peace that makes my heart heavy
My heart swells with an imbalance of raging emotion
A severe need to tell you
I truly love you.
The African sun stirs in the distance
The red turns orange and turns yellow and turns turquoise and turns blue and turns black
All in one graceful expression of self
There is a freedom here
A freedom that allows mortal men a glance into their souls
Here, I feel the freedom to tell you that I love you.
Words fail me now
There is a weightlessness in my being
Yet my beating heart finds ground
As I steal through the vast expanse of this wilderness of sky
These wings give me flight
I fly into a life uncharted
I fly into a life with you.
I am afraid
We all are
Yet when I look across the horizon
I see life reborn
I see clouds enjoined
I see the beacon flashing us home
I see a love i have known and trust
I see me and you.
