light and dark

it is always this way,
and so i’ve grown accustomed to it.
the yin yang complimenting one another
gaining balance in a wobbly world.
this is light and dark.

i have arrived and there’s nowhere else to be but right here
right now.
this is me finding my light, finding my love.
my love, my smile, my truth.
5:45pm light splashes across us
we smile into the computer screen at each another.
this is us right now.
light and dark is many things.
the joy to lift the heavy weight of loss.
the laughter to dry the tears.
the life that is behind and the life that is ahead.
the ocean breeze and salty skin bringing dreams to truth.
the see saw perfectly balanced in mid-air.
