Love caught my eyes and held them

so I had to look carefully at love

but noticed a greasy film spattered over it

I tried to scrub off the thick smudges

that tainted its clear sweetness

though nothing seemed to cut through

I felt love again and again

still, the stickiness repelled my touch

Not long ago, love had been unmuddied

by the never-to-be-prepared-for unthinkables

I thought it would always be shiny, glistening

like a just-cleaned window you could see straight through

Now, I just want love to let go of my eyes

until I can see more clearly

ONCE, you had a dream

NOW, you are only sleeping

WAKE and dream again

LOOK, all is not lost

HOPE shines light through your darkness

YOU illuminate
