Love Your Enemies
On the road as the light begins
chill and dampness on the grass
anxious to be back in the same zone
your arms wrapped around me.
So easy to return to the nest
so hard to move on to the new
a place not worn by our creases
soft at the edges from our laughter.
Those who would misunderstand
those who might judge or expel
do not understand how we love
and that we love despite it all.
There is no road but the one ahead
stretching on with hope and dreams
enough love to get us back home again
and adventure to draw us together.
