closure II: unraveling

you left a trail of tears
in the desert of my broken
vision of you
as one
who could live up to
his potential
which i saw

i saw you
the possibilities
of who you are
the gold in your soul
the diamonds in your mind
the bold strength of your body
and the steel wool of your will

loving you
your divine i saw
power to be
who you
mind body soul
can grow into
the you you can become

but some
for whatever reason
don't get to that promised land
soul fulfilled
purpose attained
mind peace imbued
until late in life
their sunset will be sweeter
and more powerful
for it

what did you see
looking at me?

i stood still with you

but now
i have to walk
some more
