My mind has strayed far away
from love’s so many struggles
as if it needed time apart
to rejuvenate the soul.
But soul (that’s me) knows mind can’t stay
for too long far away
because it’s the keeper of my love for you,
the believer of my worthiness,
the treasurer of priceless gifts,
and the chaperon of pain.
Though good it may be for a time
to mindless whittle down the days
I think it’s time now, yes, indeed
to join again and simply be
all I am and have to be
in the year two thousand twelve!
