Forgiveness

Dreams
come
           Unsought

Dreams
whose lessons
like chemistry
                             lie
in unfathomable
                                 formulae
understandable to
                                     All
but  me

Dreams
full of angst
full of fear

Fear that
                  crescendos
to horror
to terror

Terror
in which we are
                               You
and I  
          Back again
Terror
in which we must
                                   You
and I
        Try again
Terror
in which
                 Samsara
is always
                 You
and I
          AloneTogether
again

But
       oh
how I would
                         welcome
other dreams

Dreams
of being young
oh so
          YoungTogether

Dreams
of firework picnics
of Sousa and sun
of laughter and kisses

Dreams
of bottles of wine
and a
           Girl
opened
so smoothly
opened
with only
the
      skill
of your 
              knife

Will they come 
                               those 
Dreams
will they come
when my heart
                               if
my heart
finds its way
the long
                 laborious
way up the river of
                                      Lethe
to the land of
                          Forgiveness

There
will I find
                   You
waiting
               waiting
with our child
with our baby
with our
                  CaraLenore

There
will we be
no longer
                   One 
for we were
                        never
One, but
no longer
                  foes
no longer
                  vicious
no longer
Bane, but
balm
         blessing
                        benison

Oh
     yes
please say
                     Yes
it will be
                 So
Oh
      no
please say
                    No
we are not
      can not
      must not
be
     doomed
to live this
to
    LiveThis
again
