The Heart of Partnership

You lead and I follow.
I lead and you follow.
Ahead. Behind.
Always beside.

Wishes ebb and dreams flow.
Thoughts and feelings come and go.

Paths merge, then diverge.
We find each other. Back together.

There is you.
There is me.
There is everything
In between.

The struggle for power,
Desire to control.
Unwanted guests
We have to patrol.

We laugh, cry and play together.
We remember one another.

We meet together
In imperfection.
Inviting, accepting
Our sacred space.

Pick the other up.
Pull each other in.
A word of encouragement,
A challenge for more.

We ask, we listen.
We give and receive.
Seeking first, what the other may need.
