i am crying

i am falling asleep
and am full so completely so full –
of love of joy of peace –
and i am crying

i am crying for the enormous sky
the birth of summer and for freedom.

i am crying for the huge huge life
that’s new and young and waiting.

i am crying for all this love
for all the people, for all my years.

i am crying for happiness and loneliness
and for everything i’ve lost and am losing and will lose.

i am crying for my poor overwhelmed heart
and tiny wings growing out from shoulders.

i am crying for the world
and all its beauty and all its horror.

i am crying for everyone
for no one
for me.

This is like a soap opera or epic,
it is so dramatic with great language.
