To Heal {future tense}

Would that by will alone
    Or determination or strength
    Coercion or coaxing
    External input or internal desire
Would that by any means possible
I could woo you back to hear the music you have forgotten
    To undo the damage and disconnect    
    To whisper the echoes of Eden that once made you, you
But no {what lesson, this}
And so, with every passing day and week and month and season
    Indeterminate timeframe
    A crucible in waiting
With every missed milestone
Loftier goals loosen their grip
Until I no longer pray for progress but peace
To simply hold open the invitation to heal and come back to life
To hear Eden’s song
And like a tree planted by the river
Rise up tall and strong
