a fresh view

these days i’ve become lighter
by shedding bits of doubt
and giving you my trust

or maybe it’s all balanced
as you do the same?

i can feel you next to me
more than just a presence
the one who stops her work
to listen
when that’s what i need
even if i don’t know it

you and i are rivers
rolling to the ocean
meeting in the depths
bringing who we are
leaving what we’re not
we are a new body
with an old mind
a fresh view
from tired eyes

and the swirling fears move slow
embers rising in the night
but we’ll find our footing
in their fading light
