If you are lucky someday, you’ll stand, surrounded by people you know,
or in the dark of night, quietly by yourself (it does not matter where exactly)
& Life will fill your whole self & it will spill out a little with each breath
you take after that & you will give your promise to hold the world safe, for as long as it takes
& then, afterwards, you’ll go about your days, wondering what has changed
& you won’t see for a long time how it happens in small moments.
When you smile at someone you do not know. When you speak up,
though it is easier & quicker to just keep moving. When you stop & hold the hand
of a friend who can no longer go on & you speak in a low voice that only
she can hear & you say these words (or something like them): I would not want to be in a world without you in it.
& if you are lucky someday, maybe after one of these moments, you’ll understand
why Life filled your whole self & all you could do was open your arms to hold
the world close & remember how to Love.
