(so) Long Way Relay

I think i must be running
on the longest track in
our worlds.

There would always be that
Special magic between us
You know, the Feel?
And ooooo, that first time
You accepted the baton
and briefly a moment in
time, this moment Felt
like a hundred laps
a trillion seconds
hanging like suspended
snowflakes for us to tongue.
a memory to remember.

I tried to keep abreast
to run the rest of the lap
with You, beside You
However, You, with our
baton goal in hand
with a renewal and strength
with bursts of heart love
You began to pull ahead.
At first I cried!
Angry, I hurt, hurt myself -
damnit, it was - I am so
fucking stupid sometimes.

In moonlit reflection
I discovered revelation
in this vulnerable
period began to Feel
the right way and I
understand now...

A beautiful chapter has been
read; I can only reread so
many times.  Eventually, I
must turn the page to see
how our futures will progress,
will end?
So in returning to my race,
I know my place and it is
now to cheer and pull for
my Friend who speeds ahead
for us both.
And should this not be
reward enough in itself?

Yes.  I believe
it can be. For me, it is,
has to be ----
the very day I handed
over my relayed baton

...and from afar now
I am honored to let
her go.
