In the Name of Love

 Sun Through the Palms
G. Cornwall - Lana'i HI, c. 2013

I will stand by you
and fight for us
side by side
or Jedi knight

I will hold a light
when your path is dark
to remark:
you can
you have done
you will

We stand
- separate trees -
of matching wood
in that we give
and that we take

We loom not 
o'er thoughts and plans
life-giving sun
nor quenching rain

We grow in time
in our peaceful company
stretching to the heavens 
our true love
strong and free

-Gillian Cornwall, c. February 2, 2014.

As the Ocean Meets the Shore
