Saved

"Saved" - 11/21/06

not a day goes by
when I don't think
about you

though it may seem
like I've forgotten
how much in love
we once were

but rest assured
(find peace and know)
it's you I struggle
to not long for

not an hour passes
when I don't wonder
where you are

though it may feel
like distance is
a narrow wire
and fire below

but blessed is
(against all odds)
the source of light
that was your soul

once pure and new
before it burned
like so much hope
stained with charcoal
---
when I walk the plank
when I run my mile
when I think of where
I spent my best breath

I pray that your face
innocent with love
will emerge as what

saved my days from death
