in this moment
I remember
everything I came to know
the way the rivers
gather to the sea –
the measure of a rainbow
bending soft against
the sand –
a miracle
still happening
to me

I remember
every kiss –
every touch was ever mine
the echo of my name
within the dark
a rush of swallows sailing –
blind within their faith
breathing out the song
that is
my heart

I remember how it was
that first bloom within the snow
searching for a reason –
for a season
not to go

living scattered sweetly
across ten thousand years
I remember
every lifetime –
I would wait
to find you here
