Realized InTent


Somehow this lovely day I be --
Through pride and through humility
Through independence with restraint
Through steadiness of good intent
In moving back into my tent
Communicative follow through
That all involved may healthy learn
Good boundaries, but with concern
Undiminished by circumstance --
Permitted now a further chance
Bought by my willingness to go
A bit away from where they are 
-- Not too close yet not too far --
With whom I do not wish to be at war
While hopefully they healing are
Of past misunderstandings' scars
Event'ually to rise above 
All impediments to love

I have an understanding note
From the child on whom I dote
Which since bought by tented life be
I come to it most happily
