for Tracie

if i could choose
i’d choose you
if i could take away the pain
give you back again
what you’ve lost
i would
but you know going back is simply no good
if i tried
i could realize
that where i’ve been is so far from
where i want to be
you made me see
the only honesty is how deeply we believe
in what life seems
like fresh air
you breathe with a subtlety
like waves you roll
deep then breaking on the shore
and i ignite the fire
driftwood dancing in flames
for you to find in your own time
for me to embrace
we could take the same course
follow the same tides
we could do so many things
should we decide
