Looking up

We saw each other from inches away,

Just the eyes and mouth, the curve of her chin;

She saw the world from her vantage point –

There on the ground;

But now she’s standing – looking up.

Her view was red and mine was white;

She’s far away now,

Eyes opened wide

Seeing things she never saw

All those years, by my side.

Caving open – truth spilling out,

And I’m on the floor, selfishly yearning

These days are stretching us,

Testing us,

But we’ll meet again one day,

And we’ll be stronger, because of this.
