YOU AND I

If you have no future
We may yet be friends
And today as we play
The immovable notions of yesterday
Will lose their grip
And be powerless to haunt us.

Yes if you have no future
What can be yours but freedom ?

A shadow of sympathy
Passes between us
An echo of an ancient bond.
Yes we are more than womb companions
We are more than blood
More than bone or breathing
We are more than hand or eye
More than sense or feeling
We are more than family
More than birthed or breeding.
We are even more than the moment that hangs,
Reminding us,
Of our breathless star glinted conception.

Yes we are even more than that.

We are dust that settles nowhere
Sparks that fly through form
Homeless eternal travellers
Survivors of every storm

So if you have no future
We may yet be friends
And today as we play
The picture of an inevitable tomorrow
Will lose its’ pull
And be powerless to imprison us.

Thank you, John - I feel I "know" reassuringly less then I did before reading “You and I”.
