Earlier this morning,
I was slowly walking out of my dreams
and into the world.
I reached for your hand,
hoping you were walking alongside me.
Instead of your warm skin on mine,
the warm morning sunshine enveloped my palms.
A little more awake, I remembered…
you’re busily setting the world on fire.
So as you shine your light –
absolutely fearless of what it will expose
in you and other people –
I wave at you from the distance.
Happy, happy day
and all the world.
