Poem – The Return

Do we dare breathe
Into the night
Into the day?
Is it time for us to return?
Do I step forward
With you in my hand
With your song in the wind?
That makes the ache go away
This feeling that I'm okay
Summer lasting into night
Winter heating at my feet
Take me back to my stones
Where I dare to breathe
This whisper of freedom.
It's your voice that brings
The sea and the islands to me.
Is this the time to return
To the town? 
Is it too early for hugs?
Is it too early for kisses?
Is it too early for love?
Is it time to come round?
I can wait for the time 
When I can unmute my life
When I can breathe you into me
When I can breathe 
This whisper of freedom
