In The Going Came The Way

The frangipani shines today so I look and say
You are Superb.
You, sweet precious, fill my heart
and that is where I start to say
I wish you'd never gone away
your love is with me everyday.

Your gentle way was lost.
We all regret the end,
when the beginning promised more
but shiny brochures were lies upon the lies,
the 'undoing' of you and I
who cried for help
who cried for care
who cried even being there.
But there we were,
me in the beginning and you in the ending
and yet, in a most startling way
it brought us to our unity,
you and I and me, 'undoing' all for liberty.

You came from bud with the color of brightest gold
and yet so many days go by
before you find we must both go away
to begin again.

We fade in those days.
We sit in the sun
and mellow to a softer shade
and in the everglade of trees we soften more,
become subdued, 
give our most and share our essence 
but where are we?

When we went we fell away.
So as days passed 
we lost our petals in broken-heartedness.
We heard them say
we love you,
but you must go away
so you will have caring everyday.

Another petal falls to earth
it takes eternity to understand
un-learning was the only plan.
For finding you, begin again.
