Clarity Once Lost- Michael Erickson

I lost sight of you,

Across the glare of yon setting sun.

Too often I’d step into a room,

Only to see your frame disappear through a doorway.

I know now you did not seek me ill will,

Pettiness is far beneath your boisterous mind.

But I fell away,

As a leaf taken in an Autumn breeze.

We glimpsed one another,

There between a wind in a door.

And ever so gently reached for each other,

Bringing stillness to these tossing waters.

Now we see one another,

Through a glass clear as day.

Oh how I so wish to speak laugh and cry,

But please don’t let the scars of others separate our friendship dear.

We’ve stepped beyond the glaring sun,

Now truth, speak to my burdened heart.
