You & I.

You were born into zen,
I’ve had to claw for mine.

You were gifted with
never needing to find out;

I was blessed with
knowing the question
had a beautiful answer

but cursed with needing
to search everywhere
for what was in front of me.

Your eyes have
always been wide open,
looking straight ahead
at the present moment.

How lovely it is
we’ve found each other here
drifting down stream
with so much life to live.
