A spirit is kindled within my body,
Long in waiting with an earnest hope.
Both deep and superficial at once,
It shakes me from my slumber of reality.
I become the tiny speck of dust,
Dancing in the beam of sunlight.
I become the wave of the ocean that,
Pounds its forceful fist on the shore.
I turn into the nonchalant rain cloud,
Teasing all the lands beneath with its shadow.
I drift along with the lightest of feathers,
And drop down with melting snowflakes.
Until a sober voice echoes in my head
Chiding me to steady my wandering heart
But who doesn’t fall for unbridled happiness
And the love I feel when I think about you!
How would you feel when I tell you this?
The force of it hits me hard at my insides
Doubt and fear interlace with my thoughts
I wait as moonlight stopped in its tracks,
Ready to take flight with a leap of faith
Across the darkest stretches of the night
Leaving all the questions for time to answer.
