The reason we are alive

If I could summon your spirit from air

I would

Tracing the soft shape of your becoming

Awakening my eyses

To the glimpse of beauty

Hidden in a smile

That would illuminate each day

Like a blessing or a prayer

And if the being you are

Opened my heart

To the mystery of our becoming

Weaving our scattered threads together

Into a tapestry of

Longing remembrance and poetry

Then we would become tangled

Up in the precious threads

Of each others’ souls

Knowing finally

The answer to the question of our existence

We never dared dream

Would manifest

Revealing to us

The reason we are alive
