In Balance

Written by: Patrick Parks

In balance we find poise to stand
together as one on the other we lean
while they give their chest
so we can rest
we give our heart
so they can feel
without needing
just a choice
desiring connection deeply ingrained
woven in the same warm mill
working toward a merging
larger than both
every union giving birth
to another point in time
a memory refined in bliss
a touch of God's hand divine
structure providing the vase
in which our liquid may flow
into the richness it knows
without limit but deserving
to be not wasted
cherished for a moment
long enough to live free
we take our turns tenderly
where beauty finds a corner
where it need not hide
as our divinity sees
the light of day
in each other's loving eyes
