Secure in your love
at long last I am free
to let you be
and let myself be…

Or is it that I could erase
finally …and forever
the last traces of ‘conditional’
learn anew what is ‘unconditional’?

When celestial stars lose their way,
in unknown alignments make their stay
what must be will be
but…. has acceptance ever been easy?

Was ours an accidental union
or pre-ordained a re-union?
My love, can you with certainty
say, we weren’t meant to be….?

You have been my rock
immovable and strong
impetuously the brook flowed
pushing and pulling to take you along

Now I am a tranquil river
back to being a ‘giver’
no more dreams of change
of what can never be changed…

Yet… in my heart I carry
ever so carefully
something that will never die
a spark of hope, essential to survive…

Secure in my love
at long last I set you free
to let you be
and let myself be….
