This moment, right now, makes all the difference some how. My eyes open and close at night those moments of darkness, they seem to hold so much more.
In my dreams I reach for your voice. Recreating those intonations, those wordless gasps of air. The moments we felt each other’s nonsense. Years have passed. I am wearing your ring. Our daughter kicks in my belly. We’re thinking of a name. Those dreams escaped the distance. I am so glad you called me that morning.
