For Us

For everything we’ve fought for
For ourselves
For our loved ones
For our animals
For the kindred fire
That burns between us
Even for those that didn’t
Necessarily love us
We fight through the tears
We ask questions like why?
Is this punishment?
Let it be said that
All of this is happening
For us not to us

Marriage

Laughing
Caring for our home together
Breakthroughs
Flowers are growing

Arguing
We antagonize one another
We repeat the same lessons frequently
Trees are snapping

Stressing
We have contention
When we need a simple resolution
Cookies are burning

Confused
We cannot feel as close
As you are with your family
Memories are evaporating

But somehow…

Loving
We find each other
In the middle of a mesmerizing pool
Maddened rapids are subsiding

Float with me
