hey you


i found you before

life left any dents before

the form found flaws and

with open wonderment alive and

ready for more


you found me ready

for new forms fresh foundation

sparks! light! early morning smiles

receiving all the giving and living

ready for more


every past piece of effort faded

as we created this new kind of kiss

tighter and sweeter and slightly awkward

youthfully extending our freely found

arms around gladness hey you hey you


we found each other ready

for each other

and did not let go.
