Eventually

Keep me here, where I hear nothing but peace.
Where she’s in my heart,
not on my mind all the time.

Keep me here, where I hear only the trees.
Where she walks back in,
not on my calm for a while.

Sometimes I feel crazy when I say what I mean.
Sometimes we get what we thought we’d bring.
One time, I tossed and turned for two years.
Sometimes that time’s still happening.

Never found a use for giving up.
Duck and weave and crawl into me.
Eventually.

Take us there, where we find ourselves aligned.
Where our eyes connect
and we laugh until we cry.

Take us there, where we find that life surrounds.
Where we leap and skim
and land where we’re meant to be.
