Oh Darling! Let's be Adventurers
We are adventurers, just like we promised to be.
But we are lonesome travellers that cling to solitude and selfishness.
We embrace the space of loneliness,
remembering how we spurred each other on to this moment.
We pushed each other to the open road.
Our love was release, not a hold.
We puzzled people with our risk.
But we loved too much to hold on.
Perhaps we will regret.
But we will have lived in the tension of grace,
exactly where life is supposed to be lived.
My love will be a dull ache always,
a pain where our beloved string snapped
as we started to run towards our Great Perhaps
