there were tears

There were tears

And they swept into the evening

Like a rain sweeps into cracks

Filling them up


And there was laughter

And it moved into the room

Like a touch can move

To the deepest part of us


There was fear

And it tried to hold us back

Gripping tight

Like a rescue effort


There was possibility

And it whispered softly

Remembering its own presence

Gently nudging


There was relief

When it was over

And it rolled over us like a tide

And we soaked it in.


Over all these things

There was but one more

In the tears of a girl

And the nudging of a boy

There was Life.
