I’m Not Alone


Did I stand on the edge
Of eternity, cautiously
Dipping one toe,

Testing the waters,
While you jumped in
With both feet?

What a puddle, this life,
Such a splash you’ve made.
And me, no more than a ripple.

Did you hold my hand
As we watched this puddle
Form, big enough for two?

Will we sit together
Later in sunshine waiting
For the next rainy day?
