Dialectic, in Peace and Love

2.18.17

Away from you,

With me,
Still,
a piece
of you
Keeps me striving
To be
a better Me.

The Piece- a memory
Keeps me awake,
Unwilling
To settle for less
Than tomorrow
And judgement-free me
I neither hear,
Nor see you
But knowing
You are
You were
You are possible, just to be
Keeps me in motion
Balancing
wiser,
As my self.

I thank you
From my
Crescent top
Back
And forth
Up and down,
And still
I’ll rise
Out of sight
Even still
Your memory
Reminds me
Of the proven possibility,
Of peace,
peace with, and within
me
