Guardian Gemini

I feel your anxious pivot to create We flow the same irresolute way, Often in raging storms And sometimes in playful gallops We see ahead That path onto the light of laughs I am in awe of your effort to get there I am in awe of your knowing smile There is pain in every goofy moment we share We remember that misery unites our surety And that laughter reconciles our troubled minds You make sure that I am safe with each burst of sound You surprise me in an all-encompassing hug I gape and guffaw at your spontaneous passion Knowing that you must speak, I listen to the wisdom of your fast beating sentiments That is telling of your pondering intentions You mean for me to bloom as you do You want me to express all sides of me Because all sides deserve to grow I also see that you have self-odium in your bones And the emptiness of routine eats away at you Because you are not the cycle you find yourself in You live in what you are infinitely Not. I remind you that this is a temporary misery That you will soon be fulfilled Once you can find the wide open spaces In the peacefulness of waters, trees and stars That will quench your wanderlust and thirst for exploration Soon enough, As sudden as your lightening embrace, You will be surrounded in all that you love And all your labor, All your patience for true love shall not be in vain Till then, I will galvanize every joy from your body And rattle your bones with thunderous giggles I will stimulate your mind with all the possibilities And you will defend all that we have built together You will defend all that is in us You will guard our self-determining spirits To a place, inward, Of peace and belonging I learned from you the art of endurance, Taking and cherishing each moment One tremulous breath at a time I learned that we travel not alone in our woes And that beauty awaits at all stops Beauty that fills that emptiness time and time again Gemini, I love you as sure as there is hope I love that you are simple, yet complex I love that you can blend in with the ordinary, And yet you can be so transparently weird I love that you cannot function Without pleasure Without philosophy Without excitement, And that you cannot unravel meaning Without artful expression Through that signature, verbal bluntness And your tenacious feats You trek forward despite conflict You embrace dissonance Without denying pain in between What is pleasing of all, Is that you are not intrusive Of swindling emotions You know I must experience them That I must work through the doubt You let me feel wholeheartedly You ask me where my heart is You care where my mind is You always have me in your view, And you always make me smile You are Guardian, You are Friend, You are Father, And you are Brother You are many cheerful faces You are tons of ridiculous and beautiful ideas You are the Stranger that passes by, And are, thus onward, My soul-embracer, Never forgotten Acknowledged, And always valued
