Remember your way back

     not as far back as the night
     you sat beside the dwindling fire,
     beneath a sky spun out of stars 
 
     and believed that everything
     was possible.
 

Remember your way back
 
      not as far back as the day
      the letter came in the mail,
      or perhaps it was a package
 
     an answer to the wishes
     that you’d made with coins and candles
     a wispered prayer
     that ephemeral glow…
     before your heart scrabbled
     for the next thing.
 
Remember your way back
 
     perhaps an April afternoon,
     the polished blue of sky,
     the sculpted shoreline
     the dappled patterns
     in the water,
     water that lulled you
     to a reverie…
     and you thought,
     perhaps you even spoke the thought
     to the one who walked beside you

     the one who
     in that moment
     took your hand

    “Imagine this might be eternity.”

     Imagine that it is.
