Uniting: Sonnet

Understanding we could not advance as units
partitioned from standing a solid wherefore,
once upon a time we were a solid dynasty as a unit
but a dividing created divisions. The situation was incomprehensive, therefore
I lost my way in mazes, but swore I knew my way
Then I fell in love with you. And I understood I'd been lost in a maze
partitioned into divisions, sections, and not a complete sun, but a bay
so I studied organizing units and received an award for uniting divisions like school press

Repeatedly, I calculated, combined, arranged, connected
the sections: "Minus you, babe, I'm incomplete."
Where which I did not feel lost; in need to be redirected
then my unit encountered your unit, and I discovered, "I need you to be complete."
so the lessons of uniting divisions occurs from compatible collaborations.
And sections only become a unit under the lessons of loving, in celebration.

Wm. Irving
