Life held me on his shoulders
all through the long dark night.
Sing, he shouted. Remember!
His strong legs took us through meadows
and forests, over mountains and valleys.
The stars guided us and the moon
warmed us. We were one. Together
we made more than one. We made
memories, dreams, hopes, brilliance.
Life kept me safe. Reminded
me that I am strong. Life brought
adventure during the night and let me
rest. He loved me, we laughed. And then
we cried. Life told me he knew he is
hard sometimes. He said his is not sorry.
But he is compassionate. Life taught me
trust. Life promised me hope. We flew
with his strong body protecting me.
I woke up this morning knowing all
there is to know. We are love.
