Then there’s a moment 

That shatters glass

Breaks the door open

Scares you like hell

Because it forces you to feel

Deeper than you thought you could

All of the joy from the expanses of the heavens

And all of the sadness from the depths of the seas


Into one great force  

That carries you to a new destination

That requires wisdom and love

That wouldn’t have been found without that journey

That sticks like a birth mark 

Carved into your bone

I built a tower when I landed

I stood up there when you left

Watched as your feet marked the sand

I didn’t need to capture it in a photo

It was an impression left on my heart
