See you behind your curtain.

Catch my eye.

Can’t surmise.



Now I’ve caught you

in my mind.

A glimpse,

rendered so obvious

by those in kind.

Heaven is ahead.

Hell, most assuredly


Hope is more than cope.

Love sees more than blind.

Another step

and I feel the fabric

on my skin

Swaddle of a babe,

or shroud to wrap around

my mind again.

The ascent

is as certain

as the descent

in the end.

Feel myself

passing through.

I see you,

Smiling again.
