If you touch another person’s hand
and your heart explodes eclipsing
into a million stars. Take heed:
they’re part of you
They are the sun upon you when
first waking and the rain that cools
and quenches your face and throat.
If you look in a friend’s eyes
and feel their pain. Take heed:
they need your love, give them honesty
and hold them tight
They are the wind on your skin while
walking alone down the street,
and the enveloping dreams of night.
In the shadowy hallways of life
exists a beautiful light meant to be honoured.
Hold on to this, like today’s kiss on the cheek.
