Piece by piece
pieces of my soul, my being – a galaxy swirling into being
this cloud of rainbow light
and i was like “huh? what’s happening to me?!”
but i knew despite the discomfort that it was good
smiling faces with outstretched hands as i took my first steps
i didn’t know what to say so i just laughed, a chant upon the wind
my voice echoed to millions through the ages and once i blinked at you, you knew i knew what you knew
yes, little child, you are here now. don’t you see?
oh yeah, i do! i recognize this place but you’re new to me. who are you?
that’s a good question. i’m not sure that i know the answer but what i do know is that i can protect you, love you, comfort you — and i can show you some cool things too.
ah, but you gotta wait, gotta be patient…
even though it’s hard?
even though it’s hard.
well i like it here anyway. i think it’s beautiful.
i made a star just for you. ee that one there? that is my gift to you for bringing me here.
…i’ve gotten a star as a gift before..
but you should know that i’m here to protect you and love you and comfort you and teach you too. i can do that even though i’m new here.
i don’t know what to say…
i meant to tell you a secret!
what is it?
you know… you’ll know…
see now we have a secret together!
yes, we do!
the embrace that followed told me everything
it told me who i was and where i’ve been
it quieted every sadness i’ve ever held onto
it’s quiet time now
