Hops and Hope

A reminder that hope

Can grow from an idea that

Takes hold like a vine

Part II

Covers your trellis

Winding strength held up by your

Lasting Foundation

Part III

Firm, unwavering

Steadfast, weathering changing

Seasons hops and hope


That kind if intamacy

That builds

When you sleep in the same space

Share the same work

Learn together

The type of intimacy that builds

When you know each other

At your most vulnerable

At your most desperate

At a time when you are

Figuring it all out

That’s what I hold on to


Part 1

Trying to live a

Softer life, speaking gentle

erasing trauma

Part II

Holding close my love

Of soothing hurt with flowers

Blooming healing balm

Part III

So that they may know

An innocence, a freedom

To pass on instead

Part IV

Although we do not

Forget, we set them free of

The bonds of that pain
