Through unrelenting, unelected silence
After the tears and fears
And all this long, dark year –
Like returning exiles,
Our quickened hearts beat faster.
Tell me who you are …..
Then I will sing you cyber-songs.
I’ll read the words you send me slowly
As I seek to come to know you.
If I answer all your questions,
Will you do the same for me ?
Our exiled hearts are beating
Reaching out with words of grace.
Then turn from cyber-space, my dear one,
So we can linger face to face.
