My End, My Beginning

Be my end,
I plead thee,
For I don’t know
How to go on
Without you.

Be the end of me
As I know alone,
Which is so not
What I want to be,
With you.

Be the end
Of everything
As I know it,
For sometimes,
The end is where we begin.

Be the beginning
I have yearned
With all my heart,
Not for days,
But years.

Be the beginning of me
As I know somehow,
I am capable of.
All I need is a push
From you.

Be my beginning,
I propose to thee,
For I do know
Exactly how to go on
With you.

My end,
My beginning…
Be my both.
For that’s exactly what I would do,
If you let me.

  1. Quite thoughtful, Mia, and it identifies the romantic, yet mysterious moment at which “me” becomes “we.” The end of judging events by what what they mean for “me,” but in how they effect “us.”

    Ironically, as you identify, at such moments of abnegation, the individual often is exalted. Funny thing, that. Switching your self-identity to that of one half of a couple quite often gives your confidence a boost it needs. A self-assuredness you never would have known on your own. Suddenly, all of life’s challenges aren’t your own anymore, but are shared with someone else.

      Healing and change are two things that require effort as well as motivation. Thus having someone along always helps.
