They have Prepared Me for You

FATED has been waiting in the wings
for so many years now
waiting to be written after so much pain, tears, disappointments
it took us just too long
perhaps because it's a different kind of love this time
it is deeper and more robust
in the realm of the spiritual, intellectual, emotional
like we're compost--taking on the dirt and mixing all those sordid details of our lives
alone in the cold dark of the earth
and later to be tossed and turned with dark rich soil to be alive again
that's why i embraced and kissed the dark pieces of my life before i said goodbye
i own them as much though i'm ready to let go
they have 'prepared' me for you
and yours, for me as well
that's why we're so alive and richer now
we thrive and we are able to give life back
