Ballad of Hope
Honesty fed fear reaction
dancing walk steps light
evening glance skips echoed past
passed in silent flight
awkward morning shaded smiles
thrussened still polite
unplanned later last encounter
open now now bright
sharing words and plans and music
sharing hugs entwined
parting close across all distance
three months hence our lives' renaissance
meeting next without resistance
trusting trust this time
