Longing

You are coming to see me
today
and while I wait
I long for her and her too
such a confused and glorious
life-fullness

your love from so long ago
that we weren’t even grown
their loves from now
all mingled moment to moment
triple-longing

without any way to reconcile this
into one simple thing
I long for that also
the life I tried on
which didn’t fit
one love at a time

the nights I sleep alone
I dream of what seems impossible
waking up with all of you
but I have learned
not to tell the Universe
something isn’t possible

She will laugh at you
