When All Is Remembered

.
.
My beloved and I
Have passed
Through
Our desires,
Shimmering hot
With our need
For what, now,
Will never be.
We craved
For the
Inside out
Illusion of pure,
All consuming love,
Untainted
By guilt,
Flaming
Entirely true.
Together we
Continue
Towards a
Larger love.
Our compassion
Is burning
Away old
Romantic
Illusions,
Heavy with
Grief and loss.
Together we carry
Our ash
Covered burdens of
Disappointment,
Shame,
Misunderstanding,
Of sacrifice
And betrayal.
The flaming
Anguished
Fires of despair
Are
Burning out,
Leaving ashes,
Falling,
Drifting,
Collecting on paths,
Soft underfoot,
Velvety between fingers.
There is forgiveness
Only when
All is remembered.
