Safe Return

 

Her eyes aren’t the type
to come out and greet you
after you’ve been away.

They hide a bit
watching to see
if it’s really you.

Did you still walk the
greenest mountains?
Did you keep your struggle

with the wind
and lift two dark stones from
the Earth?

Did you pull heaven from the sky
into your pocket
and all while remembering

Her? Did your spirit
really bring you back here
as the crow flies?

All this, while her eyes
just stand there,
asking if it’s safe yet

to fall into mine.
