i am rootless

the way my father taught me

i find my beginning in you

and in the illusion

of isolation

suffer my ending

every day.

i am rootless

housed in a cloud.

i find my meaning

in you



and You.

i am

attached to the sky

by the strands that whisper:

find my likeness in your face

imprint the code in your DNA

my blood in your veins.

ancestral ties are insignificant

to the recognitions of the heart.

i am lost without you

lost without finding you

am found when i Love you,

same as finding me.

we are One in the pulse

together we are found

through each other we are uncovered, discovered.

i am rootless

without you.
