There is this thing that happens


Every time I feel like my heart can’t take it

like my dreams are too hard,

too big,

too slow.

There is this thing that happens.

A heartbeat palpating

in my darkness,

under my palm.

Your presence, though absent,

finds me.

There is this thing that happens,

It’s more than faith.

It’s certainty.

The knowing carries me.

There is this thing that happens

and this thing has

your voice.
