Broken, healed, wounded, whole
We walk the path of life,
Whose fabric meets our stoic gaze,
Until that time we are filled,
Seeing through the murky mist,
A hand extended
Reaching out for interrupted signals,
an impediment to mend the torn up seal
Our vows, made in insecurity
and hastiness will never be
fulfilled by stopping
at a signpost and stare
In the distance, a vista opens,
Calling us onward.
Mystical, transforming the mundane
Into an ethereal, somewhat surreal presence.
A prophetic perception, warning us
to hold hands, to walk together
and share the beauty of kindred spirits
to never be broken again
