Moment of Separation

The moment of separation
draws nearer with each breath
awaiting pain in expectation
as birth begins another death

while life begins in the forgetting
of love that lived in the begetting
of earthly form, condensed in time
in the rhythm of two hearts that rhymed

while movement, born of sweet sensation
became the beginning and end of creation
as their souls achieved enduring form
in the light of the love that warmed

the body and soul of the two become one
yet only in their separation
is this new life now begun
