A Poem for Walking Down the Long Road Together

I found this poem by Ted Enslin that speaks to me of what it feels like to share the years together.  I hope it speaks to you as well.  Enjoy.

I could open the doors

and the windows to great winds.

Let everything be scattered

Like loose sheets of paper.

Let tumbling take sense and

Proportion from what we have

Put in order that suits us.

But it would not change anything.

But it would not change anything.

You have come in and your entrance

Has been final.

You do not leave me,

Nor do I leave you, beloved.

We have made of this house

Our place and our shelter.

When we go out, we will go out together.”     by Ted Enslin
