Can We . . . ?

Can we love enough
to cover all the miles in between?
Will these loving dreams
e'er find a time and space
where we're allowed to see each other
eye to eye and face to face

or will we just allow
this loving grace to fade away
back into the mists
of sleepless nights and days
while all we've hoped and prayed for
remains an unexpressed desire
of unquenched yet potent inner fires
slowly turning flesh to dust
within mere thought of day and hour

Can we rise above all this somehow?
together all the while
aligned and integrated as one whole
and suddenly a flow begins
in descendence of ascension
that brings all alteration
to a centerpoint of heart . . .
