For the Best

Perhaps it's best
this time of separation
to put our feelings to the test
of lasting liberation

to finally reach
beyond the ties that bind
and open to potential
that once was left behind

within the stark
and lonely mists of time
enclosed within a space so dark
it seemed we'd lost our minds

while there within the dark
a warmth suffuses
a tenderness and caring never known
as the lost and lonely inner child

at last finds their true home
no longer left to roam
so unaware
and love can finally come to bear

within us all
for we dared to dive and took the fall
that taught us how to spread our wings
and fly

and there within the sky
someday I'm sure
the winds will blow you back to me
so I drift upon the wind's eternity

Perhaps this time of separation
after all is said and done
is really for the best
after all . . .
