Stride

Petrified by your light
Unperturbed jagged branches

Filled by your hushed secret
Spilled in your sweet Sunday snooze  

Blinded by your departure 
Restored hope suffering through absence

Massaged by each merciful blade
Tickling us as we pass through past shields 

Rusted by each new morning’s yawn
Sang a merciful lullaby in silence

Startled you when I finally ended my slumber
Stride onwards at one on our shared path, 

I stride a universe behind here with you
Laced fingers at the finish line
