To Care Enough

If you, my love
don't care enough
to be here with me now
than how, oh how
can any hope in this existence
continue to survive . . . ?

I have stood, so long alone
against the greater systems
of this world that's known as human
yet all I see is something that demeans
all that is most natural
to this, the life we live
and in which all of this
this flesh of which we are
must now conceive

and so now perhaps
I must become a new idea
beyond the stalking
of primordial realms
that seem to bring
the base of suffering
into these realms of being

Oh, great Elysian mystery
be with us again right now
within these times and tomes
now deemed as history
wherein the feminine
might take its place
stand side by side
with all that is most masculine
to begin to heal
the great divisions
that have come to be
within this time of mind

Yet, if you, my love
my one and only
can't care enough
to be here with me now
than how, oh how
can any hope in this existence
that is named humanity
continue to survive . . . ?
