Strength of Endearment

Oceans of yearning
Can swallow the sky
Its lone hint of existence
A tear in the eye

Heartache can dwarf
Yet is quietly shouldered
In humility

The strength of endearment
Is in love’s release
It is in relinquishment
That we can find peace

Butterfly moments
Flickers of gold
We ought not to squander
What we cannot hold
