a family

There was a day

when I was an equation of one.

and you were the same.

each of us spinning, individually in our own worlds.

and then, we collided with the force of a thousand stars.

the sparks, oh they flew.

lighting fires everywhere they fell.

and then we were two, together.

the moon and the tide.

you became the thing i knew best.

and it filled our lungs and bodies and hearts until there were no more crevices left to reach

and she became of the excess

brown eyes and a brave heart

and the spillover of all our new found purpose and love

handed us a baby boy too.

fate just plunked him down in our arms 

and we looked at each other and at them with dizzy amazement

(and a little disbelief)

It started from something so small.

two individuals in their own worlds

until a crash created a life

It’s hard to believe sometimes

that we made all of this

that we were one, then two, then three and now four.

a family.
