Him and Her

Do not forget her as she goes. As she was small, as she grows to no longer be level with toes
Do not let him leave, as you watch him fall, see him stumble, and just let him grieve

She must not succumb to the dumb, to forced trajectory, to a plan set out for her on the basis of history
He must withstand his test of tears, to best his near and dear, to arrest his fears

She will be herself, and he will be him, through the dim and dark, through thin and stark
to no longer play a part, to start where they wish, and to give up the lives forced upon their dish

Together they defy, in silent cry, as they try to defeat the plans they face
uncovering their style and grace
in this short race defiant of life’s unbending ways
