great vows

that sacred vow
that now remains unseen,
always just below the surface.
it is there to remind me
how tenuous this life can be.
an ache that wants relief–
or that itch that cannot be scratched–
making itself known
on its own schedule
and within its own time.
yet knowing that you are still here
in my heart and I in yours
even if it goes unnoticed
or is pushed down again,
it remains there
as big and bright as always.
the longing soul
whose mate has somehow
gotten lost in the malaise
of life’s karmic unfolding,
but no simple act of defiance
can stop this love
from manifesting in this moment.

I vow to embody it fully.
