i have unshakable conviction in the force of your ascent,
burning within you,
seeking daylight through your fluid movement ~
rest easy, it needs nothing
save your willingness and fortitude.
and their proof, dear one,
their proof has long been smoldering beneath your ashes,
so breathe deep and easy,
release the air within your chest gently,
gently into your ashes,
let them become warm embers
for you to see on sleepless nights,
feel the cool air hold you beneath a forgiving moon
and dear one, rest easy,
rest easy tonight
