you can’t go home again, but you can’t leave it behind

i hope our eyes will never shut
so we can see it all
and see each other
in it all

these moments
when we are truly together
when everything just falls away
as if it were never there

it was never there
it was always right here

i am grateful
for the years
that have turned to minutes
and have become these moments

it all came
in the blink of an eye
winking from the past
and nodding towards the future

you and the way you held onto things
even as you let them go
