I Know

I know what happens next,

But let me linger here a moment longer

Breathe in the sweet relief of rosy dreams

While they are still floating around my consciousness.

I know I must face inevitable change,

But only after I have searched a little bit longer

For the last remaining granules of hope on the horizon

Hidden far beneath the realms of reality.

I know, intuitively, the truth,

But let me deny it one last time, dearest soul,

Giving in to the warmth of welcomed fantasy

Where reason succumbs to the bliss of serendipity.

I know it’s finally time to truly see,

But let me open my eyes with the lens of gratitude

For the gift of shared experience on a lonely road

And the faces and spaces we called our home.
