Sweetest Life



To Warsaw
To Lewisburg
To Berlin and back

Surfacing, I gasp

I have never been known to love like this

I have believed
I have been meticulous
I have been like the butterflies

You are the patient, the quiet
 the honored back rows

Certainly this will lead to somewhere

To the uncovering, to the compositions
To the closeness and the twilight
To this our...

Sweetest life
