Initiation

Your love bathed me
in waters of pure embrace
a love forever present –
above pain and argument

And then you left, as we all must

Through silence, loss, aloneness,
I have been initiated into a kinder world
where others are seen in
gentle light, their failings
quickly forgiven
where gratitude for the
smallest gesture overwhelms
where awe in the ordinary
strikes the heart easily to tears

Vulnerability, inevitability, intense beauty

Thank you, my closest friend,
for all you gave to me in life and
for what you continue to bestow
in flashes of sublime revelation.
